I work with residential programs across the state of South Carolina and I find that UCP has very compassionate staff, a large focus on clients' rights and goals, and a high standard of care. I value their work and trust that all my UCP clients are receiving high quality services.
I have worked with UCP of South Carolina for several years now. I started my career over 30 years ago with the United Cerebral Palsy organization in California and have been involved with several UCP's across the US over the past 3 decades. During my work with UCP of South Carolina I have observed a a deep sense of caring and recognition of the value and choices of those people they support! They are a cutting edge organization accepting nothing less than a standard of excellence while maintaining the utmost of dignity and respect for those individuals and families they support.
As someone who has taught special education for over 20 years, I have come across various residential and day programs similar to the programs implemented United Cerebral Palsy of South Carolina. Only United Cerebral Palsy of South Carolina promotes a personal, goal achievement approach for each client The day center allows a creative and recreational alternative to the typical "workshop" environments seen in other day programs for adults with disabilities. I applaud these efforts and can tell that this organization is very concerned with the overall well being of its clients.
