UCP is the premiere place for children with and without disabilities to learn and grow. I am honored to have volunteered with such an amazing organization throughout my life, and have learned so much about pediatric healthcare and interventions as a result of my time at UCP. Each child's life is enriched to the nth degree by the love and compassion they are shown, paired with the encouragement to push to achieve their best potential. I love UCP!
