UCP Central PA
October 25, 2010

UCP Central PA offers services to all ages and levels of special needs. I am not only a board member, but both my children attended UCP's Inclusive daycare. This experience allowed my children not to differentiate or judge those with special needs and taught them acceptance of all. I also needed early invention when our son had meningitis. UCP tested our son for developmental delays so we could work with him to improve his abilities that were affected. UCP is here to help with anything from early childhood delays to providing housing to adults with special needs to give them the opportunities to live a fulfilling life. UCP has touched the lives of many people in our community in a positive way and continues to provide quality service to anyone in need.

The Great!

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

When my daughter attended the inclusive daycare there was a boy in her infant room who could not walk, talk or feed himself and the parents were given little hope from doctors for improvement i saw this boy improve over the years he was able to feed himself and had learned to speak several words. The most moment us achievement was at their preschool graduation when he came onto the stage with a walker and walked to receive his diploma. There was not a dry eye in the house.

Ways to make it better...

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

The most difficult task with UCP Central PA is educating the public so that everyone knows that they help with all needs not only cerebral palsy. Every person who volunteers, works for or has received services from UCP has accepted this challenge and continues to promote the depth of this organization.

MY ROLE:
Board Member & I am on the board, the development committee and chaired a fashion show to raise funds for UCP.
