Reviews for United Cerebral Palsy Of West Alabama, Inc.
I am a parent volunteer, actually the family to family support coordinator. We have helped several families by providing resources, information, and referrals. We have also provided clothing, food, and help get a ramp built for a family. Our program started about 2 months ago but has accomplished alot in that small amount of time. I personally found out about UCPWA when I went seeking help for my own daughters. Both have disabilities. I feel like all the people who work and volunteer their time at UCPWA are family.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Help with getting respite and assistive technology for both of my daughters.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
make more people aware that this resource is there for families.
