Hi! I’m UCP Oregon’s Family Support Director, Katherine Ball.
Did you know that my department supports approximately 845 families?
During an average month, I directly work with 100 families. I am available to them via email, phone, social media, and in person as needed.
I often speak with parents who are dealing with a new diagnosis of cerebral palsy. I send them a “Welcome Packet” with self-care tips, books and resources. I remain in contact with parents, providing resources, information, and a shoulder to lean on as needed.
