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 have watched as this organization has grown and become a leader in the education of children with Cerebral Palsy under the leadership of Dr. Ilene Wilkins.

Their programs should be role models for other programs across the country. I look forward to continuing to watch their amazing progress.
