I have visited UCP of Central florida on several occasions. Everytime I am lifted by the smiles and laughter of the children there. Their happy faces always brighten my day. Their laughter is infectious. I have three grown up boys, and I know from experiance that childrens faces always tell the truth.
These faces here tell me they are happy. So somebody is doing something right.

UCP of Central Florida provides excellent charter schools for children with all kinds of disabilities (developmental and physical). Their 6 campuses are in excellent locations around the Orlando area. But the real key to their great services is their amazing staff! They are professionals and they love the kids they serve. The bottom line is that they make these kids dreams come true. One of their tag lines is Life Without Limits-- UCP of Central Florida students dream, design and achieve their own lives without limits, which for children with these challenges doesn't happen without a lot of dedicated staff and leadership.

I receive the UCP newletters and am amazed at the work they do. I can't imagine anyone not being touched in some way by them. Whenever I can contribute financially, I do, because I know it's going to a wonderful organization. I look forward to the newsletter and reading about their work and how they have helped so many. UCP.....keep up the good work!
