Throughout our 70-year history of serving people with Cerebral Palsy (CP), we’ve acquired the knowledge and skills to support adults and children with a wide range of disabilities, not just CP. UCP’s programs for people with disabilities in Eastern Connecticut are designed to help increase independence at work, in school and at home. Every day, we offer programs for people with disabilities in CT to help them develop employment skills, find accessible housing and access assistive technology.
AT UCP OF EASTERN CT, THE HEALTH AND SAFETY OF THE PEOPLE WE SUPPORT AND OUR EMPLOYEES IS OUR TOP PRIORITY, ESPECIALLY DURING THIS COVID-19 PANDEMIC.
WE ARE CONSTANTLY REVIEWING GUIDANCE FROM THE CDC AND OTHER PUBLIC HEALTH EXPERTS ON THE MOST EFFECTIVE WAYS TO REMAIN SAFE DURING THE COVID-19 OUTBREAK. IN LIGHT OF RECENT RECOMMENDATIONS FROM THE CDC AND CT GOVERNOR LAMONT, WE ARE TAKING THE FOLLOWING ACTIONS:
- UCP is open in Quaker Hill and Old Saybrook daily from 8:00am to 4:00pm. Visitors will have limited access to the building, must wear masks and complete a COVID19 screening upon entry.
- Assistive Technology and Inclusion and Advocacy programs will continue to operate virtually until further notice.
- We have resumed travel and community activities for everyone we support in our In Home Support Service program while following CDC and State guidelines to ensure the health and safety of all of the Individuals.
- Our School Transition program is open.
UCP’s Internship Program: Project SEARCH at Mohegan Sun, is designed for young adults with significant disabilities. Read about our interns in the News!
