Why Choose UCP?

Typically, teenagers with developmental disabilities have not been offered the same opportunities as their peers without disabilities and often have limited opportunities to develop interpersonal relationships outside of their families. Through UCP’s Youth Resources, we create an atmosphere for teens with developmental disabilities and their peers where mutual, natural friendships are fostered and valued, where disabilities are accepted, where individual differences and unique capabilities are celebrated, and where community resources are explored. An emphasis is placed on encouraging participants to self-direct when possible while developing the skills necessary to successfully and safely engage in our community and explore new places.
