Our daughter has Down syndrome and has lived in a UCP SC home for over 6 years. She loves her home , housemates and staff! She has become more independent since living there. Staff take her and her housemates to Sunday School each Sunday and to various activities as well as the day program they all attend and other activities. My husband and I have peace of mi d knowing she is cared far, given the opportunity to function as independently as possible given her mental limitations. This has given us the opportunity to take some good trips knowing that she is cared for and happy.

Though I do not have any family or friends who use the services at United Cerebral Palsy of South Carolina, I have recently attended many of their social fundraising events at various restaurants. Through these social outings I have met compassionate UCP staff, family members of the people served, and the consumers themselves. At these events I have seen the “individual focused” environment of everyone in the organization and the ability of the staff to work together to provide the best possible experiences for the people served. As an outsider, I was unaware of the organization before and now have become a donor myself.

My son has been in a UCP training home for 5 plus years. The staff there gives him good care and attention. He is very happy living there with his roommates. I would highly recommend UCP of SC to anyone who needed their services.

I am the employer an adult served by this organization. I have seen this adult thrive over the past few years as she has grown with her house roommates and staff. She has one particular staff member that she is very fond of and I can see her eyes light up every time this staff member picks her up at the end of her shift. I know that truly she must be developing meaningful relationships there.
