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.
This October, UCP held our first-ever “Mini” Family Conference—a one-day conference designed for families who experience cerebral palsy.
We’re pleased to report that the Mini Conference was a hit! Attendees said that it was, “absolutely wonderful and extremely informative,” “just the right size,” and that they “felt very included and together.”
Each October, UCP celebrates UCP Employee Appreciation Month.
This year's celebrations have included an Employee Appreciation Breakfast, an Employee Appreciation Pizza Party, and--circa last night--a UCP Employee Appreciation Bowling night.
Check out the Bowling Night video above, made by our intrepid Development Director, Gavin Johnson!
As you may know, October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month in Oregon. But did you know that one of UCP's Supported Employment customers (Emanuel) was just featured in a new publication from the Oregon Department of Human Services?
Read all about Emanuel and his job here.
Congrats to everyone involved, including Emanuel, Emanuel's UCP Job Developer (Nicole Vivanco), and Emanuel's employer (OHSU)!
