FROM THE DESK OF ANN COFFEY, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
Hello, UCP employees, customers, families, board members, and community partners.
I am pleased to announce UCP Oregon’s Agency goals for the years 2020-2023:
These goals are customer-driven, and were created using the feedback from customer focus groups, UCP Oregon employees, UCP Oregon’s leadership team, and Board of Directors.
I’ve been employed by UCP since 2003, and been privileged to participate in strategic planning throughout the years. However, these goals are particularly near and dear to my heart, as they have incorporated customer feedback in a manner which supports UCP’s values of self-direction like never before. I look forward to supporting all of us to implement them in our work lives!
Ann Coffey, Executive Director
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.
