Both my personal family members in the past, and all my 7th and 8th grade students are supported by UCP.
My older sister was supported until she died from complications of MS in 2006. Not only was she supported by them, so was her family. Her sons and husband owe so much to UCP for all their support and kindness. This is important to note that no other organization offered her and her family support other than pamphlets and to join support groups which she couldn't possibly get to their meetings.
And, my students are supported every year by the awesome ATTITUDES essay contest which not only gives them a voice, but also let's them be encouraged as young writers with a great choice of prompts.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart to UCP!

I began working with UCP on a professional level as a vendor filling some of their printing needs years ago. During this time I have come to know many of the wonderful people working there and have learned so much about their mission and the great work they do. Their dedication is amazing, and the stories I've heard of how UCP has changed lives are truly inspirational. I have also volunteered at their annual gift wrap fundraiser, which is a great way to get out and share some holiday "giving" spirit by doing your part for this great organization. I have nothing but positive things to say about everyone I've ever encountered at UCP!

I work as an academic facilitator and advocate for a college student with multiple physical challenges. I became involved with UCP when, despite those challenges, their foundation office offered her an internship during the summers of 2012 and 2013.

The staff at the UCP Foundation office went far above the typical internship duties and assignments. They provided her with challenging and career specific opportunities to contribute to their organizational efforts. She was given the chance to write pieces for their newsletters, and they even used a project she designed as an on-going fund-raiser.

She was accepted and included as an integral part of their staff, included in meetings, and her input was sought on events they were planning. The entire staff provided such a positive experience for her and encouraged her career efforts and confidence more than most people will even know. Thank you to the entire UCP Foundation staff!

Keep providing opportunities like those given to my student!
