We're excited to announce that UCP, along with Abeona Group, is hosting a Zoom class about government benefits for individuals who experience disabilities!
Join us on August 18th at 7:00 PM.
You'll learn how programs like SSI, SSDI, Medicaid, Medicare, K-Plan, ABLE Act, and more can help support your loved one, and how to best navigate the complexities within these programs.
*Zoom Registration Required*
NOTE: Please contact Hayley Palmer with any questions or concerns: 503-914-1285 or firstname.lastname@example.org
The program is called Amazon Smiles. It's incredibly easy to set up.
Last week, UCP Oregon and the nation celebrated the 30th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
Did you know that an 8-year-old girl who experienced cerebral palsy helped get this bill passed?
Jennifer Keelan-Chaffins crawled up the 83 stone steps that lead to the U.S. Capitol. "I’ll take all night if I have to," she said.
Joining her on her journey were some 60 other activists who also cast aside their mobility devices, all with a goal of demonstrating the everyday barriers experienced by people with disabilities.
Jennifer is still a disability rights activist today. Learn more about her story here.
