We love UCP!! I have watched this incredible organization grow over the last several years and am continuously overwhelmed by the dedication and loyalty of the staff and volunteers...as well as how much each child who has passed through the doors of UCP LOVES being there, and exceeds numerous expectations and goals because of being there. I have several friends who have children at two different UCP campuses, and who's lives have been changed because of the teachers, therapists, staff and volunteers who work tirelessly to change the lives of children!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing how dramatically changed my friends lives are who have children enrolled. I've also seen the dedication and generosity of my family who has been involved with UCP over several decades.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

encourage everyone to learn more about it and give more time and money because UCP ROCKS!

As I am not in Florida, I can only admire their work from afar and hope that other cities can emulate their programs.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

See to it that it was duplicated throughout the country
