Coordinating services that help connect people with disabilities in Eastern Connecticut find financial resources.
UCP’s Disability Support Coordinator offers information, guidance and referrals to help individuals with disabilities in Eastern CT obtain economic security. We do this by coordinating services like financial assistance for heating and energy, transportation and assistive technology. We also work with community partners and local businesses to find affordable and accessible housing and/or provide housing modifications that enable people with disabilities to safely access their home.
We work to decrease homelessness due to financial hardship, eviction, and unemployment. In some instances we are able to provide direct financial assistance to avoid “shut offs” and evictions and then provide follow-up support to ensure future housing stability. Our program supports individuals with disabilities, their families and caregivers by identifying and addressing the following needs.
