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
UCP Oregon launched the Bill Porter Memorial Fund in 2018 in an effort to remove barriers and support meaningful lives for people experiencing disabilities.
In 2019, the Fund accepted its first round of applicants. Below are some of their stories. (You can also read more stories here.)
The world of disabilities funding can be confusing!
That’s why we’d like to share a link to a really helpful summary about the upcoming Oregon Needs Assessment (ONA). The ONA will affect everyone who qualifies for developmental disability services in Oregon who chooses to receive services from the Community First Choice (K) Plan.
Thanks to The Oregon Support Services Association for creating and sharing the summary.
