UCP of Eastern Connecticut is putting together a team to run the Hartford Half Marathon on October 13th to support the Disabilitiy Support Program.

What Services Does the Disability Support Program Provide?

1.) Case management, 2.) Information and referral, 3.) Financial assistance, 4.) A support/recreation group for people with physical disabilities, 5.) Volunteer coordination, 6.) The Tech Tot Toy Library for children with disabilities to help them develop vital skills to become independent adults.

What makes UCP's Disability Support Program Important? Did you know...

In 2009, the State of Connecticut "retired" 40 case workers from the Department of Developmental Services (DDS), leaving hundreds of children with disabilities without case management services. The Disability Support Program is here to help!

or that...

To get services from DDS you have to have an intellectual disability, yet there are hundreds of people with disabilities in Connecticut who do not have an intellectual disability. These individuals are left without services through DDS. The Disability Support Program is here to help!

and that...

The Disability Support Program serves people with ALL disabilities, not just Cerebral Palsy. Services are provided free of charge from birth through senior citizens.

You Can Make a Difference!

By donating to the Disability Support Program, you are providing children and adults with disabilities vital support they cannot receive elsewhere to increase their independence and full citizenship. All donations are tax deductable. Thank you!
