2009 Annual Report









A Message From A Message From

As you read through this annual report, you will become

acquainted with the UCP family of organizations. You will be

introduced to a few of the extraordinary volunteers, staff and

clients, who make up this family. Through their strong

partnership, we have created the widest continuum of programs,

providing more direct services and support to children and

adults and their families with developmental disabilities than

any other health charity in Southern California.

During these past two difficult years, when state funding was

reduced, contributions were down, and operation losses large,

all UCP services continued at the highest quality and even expanded. We completed our new

affordable apartment complex, Casa de la Amistad, in Glendale, developed an apprenticeship

program for disabled adults in Santa Barbara, served 200 children with autism a week through

our performing arts program, and custom-fit and delivered 5,000 wheelchairs to poor children

and adults in developing countries around the world. We also opened UCP Wheels for

Humanity Indonesia, a wheelchair assembly plant in Yogyakarta.

As we developed these new divisions and increased our services, we continued uninterrupted,

to serve approximately 1,000 individuals with disabilities every day in over 40 locations which

you will see in this report.

What makes this possible is our caring community, our generous, dedicated Board of Directors,

professional staff who are at the top of their game, and the families of those we serve.

To all of you who are involved in any way, our heartfelt thanks; you truly make a difference.

For those reading about the UCP family of organizations for the first time, I invite you to join

us. Together, we will enrich the lives of many.


Ronald S. Cohen, Ph.D.

President and Chief Executive Officer

UCP est. in 1945

I would like to thank each and

every member of the Board for

their friendship and continued

support in carrying out the

mission of UCP. Without their

dedication, hard work, and energy,

UCP would not be what it is

today. When called upon to serve, our Board of Directors

do so willingly, with an open heart and checkbook, and for

that, I and the clients of UCP are eternally grateful! As you

know, we continue to face tough economic times ahead,

and their involvement and commitment to UCP has never

been more needed or welcomed. Together, with family

and community support, we give the gift of independence

and ensure a life without limits for all of our clients. Their

service and selflessness never goes unnoticed or unappreciated.

It is a humbling honor and privilege to serve as your chairman.


Nicholas P. Roxborough

Chairman, Board of Directors

Who We Are

United Cerebral Palsy of Los Angeles, Ventura and Santa Barbara Counties (UCP), founded in 1945, has become the largest nonprofit direct care provider

of services in Southern California for persons with cerebral palsy, autism, and other developmental disabilities, serving over 1,000 children and adults daily.

UCP offers over 40 programs and services in four counties, ranging from residential and day programs to advocacy and family support services. These include

adult day activity and learning centers; affordable, accessible apartments, accompanied by supported living counselors; group homes with full activities and

nursing staff; children’s programs; advocacy; and RESPITALITY, giving

parents a much needed break. By adding UCP WORK, Inc. to our

family in 2001, UCP’s services expanded into Santa Barbara County.

Then with the addition of UCP Wheels for Humanity in 2007,

UCP’s impact was elevated to a global level.

Through the generosity of our community supporters, the commitment

of a dedicated staff, and the courage and vision of our Boards of Directors

and Board of Governors, UCP meets the needs of individuals and their

families throughout their lifetime, enabling them to maximize their own

potential and live full and dignified lives. UCP continues to grow and

evolve as an organization, devoted to enabling persons with all

developmental disabilities to live a life without limits. Students of the UCPlay Project follow Program Manager, Olivia Karaolis (bottom left) and Teal

Independent Living Apartments

UCP is one of the largest developers of affordable housing for the developmentally disabled community in the United States. Our eleven independent living

apartments help address the critical shortage of

affordable, accessible housing in Los Angeles, Orange

and Santa Barbara Counties. Residents of our apartments

have an increased sense of independence, with the ability

to lead productive, autonomous lifestyles, contributing

to their communities as citizens, employees, students,

neighbors, and friends. Casa de la Amistad (House of

Friendship) is the most recent addition to the UCP

network of independent living apartments. The 24-unit

complex is located in the City of Glendale. Subsidies

made available through the U.S. Department of Housing

and Urban Development (HUD) will ensure rents will

never exceed 1/3 of each resident’s income.

Casa de la Amistad - House of Friendship

Casa de la Amistad is approximately 19,863 sq. ft. and is the 11th UCP accessible apartment complex for

individuals with developmental disabilities.

Adult Day Programs

UCP’s Adult Day Programs include innovative programs that enable people to connect with resources that strengthen independence, self-esteem, healthy

living, and a sense of belonging to their community. Our focus is to promote meaningful options for the people we partner with as they carve out their adult

lives; this includes an emphasis on personal choices, increased access to innovative health services, individualized training and skill building, and accessible

options for continuing education, job placement and socialization.

Day program services are provided in six primary learning areas, including:

• Self-Advocacy and Socialization

• Self-Care and Physical Effectiveness

• Community Integration

• Vocational Training and Volunteer Internships

• Communication and Personal Expression

• Fine and Performing Arts

Children’s Programs - UCPlay PROJECT

The UCPlay Project, created in October of 2008, gives children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum

Disorders (ASD) and other disabilities a voice through drama, dance and music. We draw on the

creative arts to foster communication, social relatedness and expansion of behavioral interests. Our

learning experiences are designed to develop joint attention. Joint attention makes a significant

contribution in our ability to share objects, feelings and experiences with others. Currently, this

program teaches over 200 students a week ranging from 3 to 15 years of age. The UCPlay Project has

grown significantly from its inception and is being taught in the Los Angeles, Malibu-Santa Monica

and Palos Verdes Peninsula Unified School Districts.

Students at Wilton Place Elementary (LAUSD) participate in the Hoola Hoop

activity as part of the UCPlay Project curriculum.

Students from Sunrise Preschool (PVPUSD) are dressed up for

a UCPlay Project performance that took place during the Special

Children’s League - South Bay Holiday Luncheon.

Group Homes

One of the cornerstones of UCP’s multi-faceted programs are the 25 community based homes that provide a loving, caring environment for adults with

cerebral palsy and other developmental disabilities to live full and dignified lives.

Services of Group Homes include:

• Personal care by trained staff 24 hours a day.

• On-going medical support and medication administration based on individualized health care needs.

• Active treatment training

programs in all activities

of daily living.

• Social/recreational

opportunities both on-

site and in the community.

• Training to develop

maximum independence

and self-help skills.

Parent Groups

UCP is fortunate to have several active parent groups at multiple group home locations. The multi-generational groups are made up of parents and siblings

of our clients who meet on a regular basis to interact with staff and other families. The meetings act as an educational and social forum to help build

stronger relationships between UCP and family members of our clients. The

Parent Groups are also active in raising funds to cover various expenses such as

social events for the staff, family and clients, and items that are requested by

staff for the residents and the group home facility.

Members of the Chatsworth Parent Group, Dr. Jere Yates (UCP Board Member)

and Mary Smith enjoy Operation Santa, a holiday tradition at UCP Chatsworth.

“Knowing my child is well taken care of is priceless. The

UCP staff is caring and professional. Chatsworth is a

family and a home. Words cannot express my gratitude.”

- Mary Smith, Parent Group Member

Respite – noun. 1. Temporary relief. 2. Time out from parenting responsibilities.

Hospitality – noun. 1. Generosity & friendliness toward visitors. 2. The complimentary weekend accommodations donated by the hotel community.

The UCP RESPITALITY Program offers parents of children with special

needs the opportunity to get away for a relaxing weekend. Parents are

given the gift of free weekend accommodations at one of our local partner

hotels, while a qualified UCP Care Provider takes care of the children in

their own home at no cost to the family. A UCP RESPITALITY weekend

gives couples and single parents a chance to get away and have a much

needed break. Since it’s inception in 1989, the program has been

supported by 18-20 hotels in Los Angeles and Ventura Counties each year,

enabling UCP to serve 70 families annually.

“We cannot thank you enough for the generosity and

continued support of the UCP RESPITALITY Program, it

is a huge gift for our family and we sincerely appreciate

the opportunity to be a part of it.”

- Edward & Susan Inclan

The staff and management team at UCP are the foundation of the organization. As far north as Santa Barbara County and as far south as Orange County,

there are over 650 people on the UCP roster. Many employees have been with the organization for over 30 years and it is this dedication and loyalty that

has helped us become the largest provider of services to the developmentally disabled community in Southern California. Each employee serves an important

role here at UCP and together they help make a difference in the everyday lives of our clients and their family members.

Special Children’s League and Psi Delta Sigma

UCP is the fortunate recipient of the hard work and dedication of two auxiliary groups, the Special Children’s League, Inc. (SCL) and Psi Delta Sigma, Inc.

Special Children’s League was founded in 1946 as a volunteer organization dedicated to furthering the cause of all people with developmental disabilities.

There are three active SCL committees (Foothill, South Bay and Whittier) that raise funds for UCP through special events, silent auctions and other activities. Psi

Delta Sigma was founded in 1921 as a national social group of women with a charitable purpose of supporting United Cerebral Palsy. Today there are

seven chapters exclusively in Southern California. The SCL committees and Psi Delta Sigma chapters together continue to raise thousands of dollars every

year for UCP and continue to foster their goals of helping individuals with developmental disabilities.

Community Involvement

In addition to the work that UCP does for the developmentally disabled communities in Southern

California, our community involvement efforts include:

• On-going volunteer program with Notre Dame High School students, with a focus on

Respect for the Challenged.

• A UCP art exhibit, which was open to the public at the Santa Monica Pier Carousel,

showcased client artwork and photographs of UCP’s clients and programs.

• Company wide food and toy drive during the holiday season.

• UCP clients participate in a Meals On Wheels program to deliver food to homebound seniors.

• UCP clients volunteer at

ONEgeneration in Van Nuys

to assist with the lunch


• UCP WORK, Inc. clients give

back weekly to the community

of Isla Vista in Santa Barbara

program where they assist in

maintaining the neighborhood.

Fundraising and Events

Fundraising and events are an important part of UCP’s growth and help build

awareness for our mission. We host a variety of fundraising events

throughout the year. The UCP Golf Classic is in its fourteenth year at the

Wilshire Country Club and the Devon Stern/UCP Golf Tournament is in its

twelfth year at the Camarillo Springs Golf Course. The newest event, which takes

place in the fall, is our Annual Casino Night at the Santa Monica Pier Carousel.

Through the kindness of community supporters and our Board of

Directors and Governors, UCP has been successful in raising money

to support our many programs. UCP has become a leader in Southern

California in providing direct care services for persons with cerebral

palsy, autism and other developmental disabilities, serving over 1,000

children and adults daily.

UCP Wheels for Humanity (UCP WFH), a division of UCP, collects and

refurbishes discarded wheelchairs and delivers them to disadvantaged

children and adults in developing countries. Since 1996, UCP WFH has

helped thousands of children and adults with disabilities across the developing

world gain increased mobility and dignity. UCP WFH is one of the few

organizations of its kind that uses the expertise of volunteer physical therapists,

occupational therapists and certified rehabilitation technology suppliers to

individually fit the wheelchairs to meet the recipients’ needs.

Wheelchairs are strapped to a van where they will make their way to new owners. Many

wheelchair recipients are given control over their mobility for the first time in their lives.

In April of 2009, UCP WFH received a $1.6 million grant from USAID to establish an

assembly facility for wheelchairs, a training program for physical therapists and to develop

an empowerment and advocacy program in Indonesia. The wheelchair assembly operation

is located in Yogyakarta, Indonesia and employs a staff with disabilities to manage and run

the program. The end product is a locally produced pediatric wheelchair, which will be given

away to poor Indonesian children. Locally trained physical therapists will fit and service the

wheelchairs and a new awareness of disability rights by the Indonesian government will result

Partner Organization

from this venture. The project is expected to

become a long-term program in Indonesia and

a model for future programs. With their new

found mobility, children will be able to attend

school and become models of empowerment

for future generations of children with disabilities.

UCP WORK, Inc., a division of UCP, offers services to over 400 residents throughout Santa Barbara

and Ventura Counties. Their programs cater to children and adults with developmental disabilities, mental

health conditions, physical limitations and other neurological disabilities. UCP WORK, Inc.’s mission is

to empower and support people with significant disabilities so that they may achieve the highest degree

of independence.
