My family has directly benefitted from services provided by UCP of Central PA. The professionalism, knowledge, and care shown by its volunteers is a testament to the organization. My wife and I would have been lost without the care and expertise of our son's physical therapist. His first steps were a direct result of her care. These truly dedicated volunteers and staff are a great asset to Central Pennsylvania!

I was a volunteer at the UCP childrens center in Camp Hill when I was between jobs-I have to say I got more out of it than I gave to them, Watching the children in the day care center interacting with the children with disabilities was something to see, We could all learn a wonderful lesson from these children. The staff is the best, I enjoyed working with everyone and miss them all.
I also worked the Sports Auction and was so impressed by the hard work of so many people--you just wouldn't believe how much work goes into that event.
UCP Central Pa offers so much for people in need and also a great place to volunteer.
With my new job I'm not able to volunteer at the childrens center, but will continue to be part of this wonderful organization.

I worked as intern for UCP of Central PA for the last two summers. I must say both internships were quite rewarding experiences. Not only was I included at every staff meeting during my stint at UCP, but also I was made to feel like I was an essential part of the team. I felt like my thoughts and opinions were deeply considered and appreciated when expressed. Both internships gave me great confidence in myself and to be expose to the working world. I saw I could make a difference in the lives of individuals, some who have disabilities similar to my own, mainly through my words.

If I had a chance to make changes to this organization, I would advertise UCP more, so individuals were aware and could reap its benefits. UCP is a sanctuary where clients can follow their dreams; whatever they may be!

The most significant benefit of my relationship with United Cerebral Palsy, I think, is to live independently, (with the help of my Mom and attendants, of course), and receive a college education. United Cerebral Palsy’s help proves that I can do anything with my life, even live in a dorm, not especially designed for individuals who have physical limitations. I never thought this possible before my involvement with the United Cerebral Palsy organization. Opportunities are limitless for those who are involved with the program. The receiver needs to have an open mind, though. Wildest dreams are possible with perseverance, self-motivation, faith in yourself and others’ faith in your abilities. United Cerebral Palsy continuously helps me to reach my goals; and with every success in my life, I am grateful to them.

I have been involved with UCP Central PA for 25 years, beginning as a volunteer for special events. I have served on many committees, worked as a volunteer on multiple fundraisers and served a term as Board President. I have always said that the dedication of the staff is my reason to stay very involved. I learned about UCP and its excellent programs from fellow volunteers and cannot recall the number of parents of service recipients who have praised UCP and its staff for miraculous results of therapies, counseling, etc. Good friends and parents of Joey credit UCP with his current school success. Staff commitment, innovation, and caring never waver. Staff inspires me to remain a lifelong volunteer!

If I could, I would further ensure UCP's future financial stability through fundraising for the UCP Foundation.

I became involved with UCP of the Capital Area 25 years ago when my nephew was diagnosed with UCP. Early intervention brought him up to his greatest potential. The programs and services offered to all ages with any type of disability is just amazing. The staff is so kind and qualified. I have seen huge progress over the years in the areas they cover, both physically and geographically. They never lose sight of the mission and the money raised is spent wisely. It is an honor to volunteer for them.

I have participated on the Board of Directors of UCP Central PA for many years and I continue to be amazed at the number of people with disabilities they help every day. This is a well run, efficient, effective community resource and I am proud to be a small part of it.

I became a volunteer for UCP through my office. For many years, I have been involved with UCP as a volunteer at the UCP/Schmidt Kramer Annual Golf Tournament and this year I will be volunteering at the UCP Gift Wrap. Some of the employees in my office have served on various UCP Committees. UCP is a wonderful organization to be involved in as a volunteer and as a client needing services as well as their family. UCP provides services and support to clients of all ages and with all disabilities. It is a privilege to work with the staff of UCP and to support the cause of UCP. UCP makes a difference in the lives of so many in our community and I am glad to be part of its mission.

I am not sure if people are aware that UCP is for individuals of all ages with all different disabilities. People may think it is only for children with Cerebral Palsy.

My daughter has been served by UCP for almost 30 years......Early Intervention with Physical and Speech therapies in the 80's, Summer Camp in the 90's and Day Programs and the Lending Library in the 00's........... They also have a new Apartment Plus Program in Carlisle that provides staff and support for the residential needs of consumers with MR who need more that 6 hours of support a week. This organization is also a strong advocate locally, state-wide, and nationally as this special population faces more and more budget cuts. They continue to provide different services for different needs at different times in the life of the consumer.

I have participated with UCP of Central PA for several years, and I have seen their work from the point of view of an educator and friend and mother. It is a resource that both educates families and also unites them. Our children need advocates and as parents we often don't know enough to defend, support, and encourage our children. The UCP does this and more. It also gives support to families and provides opportunities for wonderful interaction.

If I had to make changes, I would give them more advertising so that they could get the word out to the many families who still don't know about this resource, and I would give them money to allow them to help more families!
