UCP normally has a Family Conference every two years. This year, though, we’re having a special extra “Mini” Conference on Saturday, October 7, 2017, from 9am-4:30pm in Salem.
“It’s designed for parents who are raising a child who experiences cerebral palsy…although all five workshops are relevant for parents raising a child with any disability!
At the “My Child’s Life Care Notebook” session, you’ll learn how to keep track of your child’s school and medical records using a special (free!) notebook. You’ll be able to get life planning off the back burner at our “Life Care Planning/ABLE Act” session. And you’ll learn how to navigate and appeal insurance decisions at our “Healthcare/Insurance Advocacy & Funding Resources” session.

Thank you to the sponsors, participants, and supporters of this year's Walk, Roll 'n' Run! Together we raised more than $90,000 for UCP Family Support.
Fundraising is open through September 30, so if you haven't donated yet, please help us reach our $100,000 goal! To donate, visit the event's website.
Congratulations to UCP's Melissa Miller, who was just promoted to the brand new position of Employment Services Department Director.
