As many of you know, UCP Oregon has been passionate about the idea of community inclusion for adults who experience developmental disabilities for many decades. It is therefore with sadness that we announce that we are discontinuing our community inclusion service area (UCP’s “Choices” Department). The closure is effective May 9th for Choices customers, and May 11th for Choices employees.
UCP is pleased to announce that we’re growing—quite a bit!
Currently, UCP Connections (our support services brokerage department) supports 251 customers, but over the next few months, Connections will grow by almost 30%, with the end goal of supporting 326 customers.
We are excited to announce that UCP has once again been named as one of the 100 Best Nonprofits to Work for in Oregon for 2014!
We achieved this designation based on our employees’ responses to an annual survey administered by Oregon Business magazine, as well as our benefits package. We have achieved this designation 5 times now: in 2009, 2010, 2012, 2013 & 2014.
We will learn where exactly we placed during an awards ceremony on October 1st.
Thanks to all the wonderful employees who made this designation possible! You are truly what makes UCP great.
