Overview


Mission Statement

The mission of UCP of Orange County is to help children with disabilities reach their full potential and improve the quality of life for their families.

Background Statement

UCP-OC was founded in the early 1950s by parents and friends of children with cerebral palsy to offer education and social activities not provided by the public school system. UCP-OC later became an affiliate of the state of California and national United Cerebral Palsy organization. In 1953, UCP-OC officially incorporated as a non-profit corporation.

Although the organization’s original focus was cerebral palsy, services have broadened over time to include other developmental disabilities to clients from age from birth to 22. UCP-OC’s programs now include therapy, inclusive childcare, respite care, in-home early intervention, recreation and family support.

In 2008, UCP-OC opened its Life Without Limits Pediatric Therapy Center to provide cutting edge, comprehensive care to children with all types of developmental disabilities.

UCP-OC is supported by philanthropic contributions from generous Orange County individuals, corporations, granting foundations, and contracts with the Department of Developmental Services via Regional Center of Orange County as well as private insurance.


Impact Statement

UCP-OC provided 5,300 children and families throughout our community with 126,000 hours of life-changing services - a record for our organization.

As the occurrence of developmental disabilities continues to increase, organizational growth to meet additional need is always a goal. Continued revenue diversification is also a current strategic priority, with focus on programmatic utilization and philanthropy.


Needs Statement

Although we receive reimbursement from insurance companies for therapy services, this reimbursement does not cover the full cost of these programs. In order to continue to grow and provide the best services to children and their families, we need community support through philanthropic gifts. Additional needs include:

- A greater awareness and understanding by the community that many disabilities are addressed at UCP-OC; not just CP.

- Individual and organizational giving.

- Volunteers of all sorts, including board and committees.

- Facility and technology support.


CEO Statement

It is our pleasure to invite you to visit our center in Irvine. On this visit. you will meet children and families who are accomplishing successes that at one time in their life seemed unimaginable.

Because of the services provided at UCP of Orange County, they are able to reach their full potential.  After your visit, you will leave feeling inspired by the determination and many smiles you see from the children we serve. The level of care provided to each UCP-OC child would not be possible without the dedication of the staff who works with them!

We could not do what we do without the support of the community. Your generous donations allow us to serve children with disabilities and provide critically needed services to their families. We are truly creating a Life Without Limits for these children.

Our board is a hard-working group of business and community leaders who are committed to helping us achieve our mission. These dynamic individuals are instrumental in both fundraising and strategic planning.

The Pediatric Medical Advisory Board is comprised of medical professionals. They represent well-respected and leading medical institutions with medical and developmental expertise across the spectrum of pediatric subspecialties.

As we move forward, we want to provide the best possible services to the growing number of children and families in need. We understand that they face decisions every day regarding their children’s health in a system that is not always easy. We want to be here for them to achieve a Life Without Limits for them. With your help, we can continue to do that. Thank you for your gifts to our mission.


Board Chair Statement

Our organization seeks to improve the lives of children with disabilities and pursue a "life without limits" through providing therapy and  services that are unique to their particular needs and circumstances. Our challenge is complex. There is a changing landscape of what services are needed for the children we serve; one of our challenges is to fulfill that portfolio in the most optimal manner. In addition to the "services" challenge, is the changing landscape of how these services will get funded. These two challenges constitute a formidable strategic need to evolve this organization and its services while being mindful of our financial capabilities.

The governance challenge is created by this strategic and economic landscape. First and foremost, we are building our board of directors, who provide skills to help guide our strategic choices in addition to contributing their time, resources and community connections that advance our philanthropic needs. We are working to create and foster strong governance practices to be able to harness the strategic contribution from the board and to function in a manner that gives confidence to our stakeholders; the children and their families as well as the community that supports our efforts.

On a personal side, there is much to be done to improve the lives of the children and families that we serve. I find great satisfaction that at UCP of Orange County, we directly impact the lives of thousands of Orange County children and their families. They face many challenges and it is both my personal goal and the goal of UCP-OC to make a difference in their pursuit of a "Life Without Limits."

James Corbett, Chairman of the Board

UCP of Orange County

Program Success Monitored By 

The child reaching therapy goals established and tracked in the medical record.

Examples of Program Success 

Nine-year-old Mandy has been receiving therapy at UCP-OC for more than seven years to help her reach her full developmental potential. She was born with Down syndrome and experienced a wide range of resulting medical issues, including a seizure disorder that caused as many as 100 episodes per day. While doctors were able to stop the seizures, the damage they caused created significant delay in Mandy's development. Perhaps most devastating to her parents, Natalie and Dan, was the possibility that their beautiful daughter might never speak.

If you met Mandy today, you'd never know Mandy had any issue communicating. One of her favorite activities is karaoke! With the help of weekly UCP-OC physical, occupational and speech therapy sessions, Mandy has gained confidence in social settings, is a skillful communicator, able to attend a typical public school, and enjoying the same things many nine-year-olds do. Natalie shared “UCP-OC has given Mandy a solid foundation to help her not just survive, but THRIVE! When you work together as a team with UCP-OC, you are investing in a lifetime of positive change in your child no matter what the diagnosis.”

In Home Early Intervention

UCP-OC sends Child Developmental Specialists to the homes of children with a diagnosed disability or those at risk for developing a disability. These children have delays in up to five developmental areas. Therapy and instruction are specifically designed to help children from birth to five years old with one or more developmental disability or delay to accomplish developmental milestones and mitigate long-term issues. This program is provided both in-center and in-home, depending on the child's needs.

Budget  $314,884.00

Program Long-Term Success 

Children who reach typical developmental milestones by the time they enter school.

Program Success Monitored By 

The child reaching developmental goals established and tracked in the medical record.

Examples of Program Success 

Milena finds the world so interesting, and she lets you know what she thinks with her adorable expressions. 17-month-old Milena has Down syndrome and receives in-home Early Intervention to help reach her developmental milestones. With the help of Deanna, her Child Development Specialist, Milena makes great progress in all areas of development, especially in her gross motor and language skills. She enjoys blowing bubbles, dancing, and peek-a-boo. 


Respite Care

The Respite program is designed to provide a well-deserved break to the parents of children with special needs. Having UCP-OC’s trained caregivers in the home setting gives parents time to take care of themselves, focus on their spouse and other children, and it revitalizes them to continue caring for their child.

Examples of Program Success  Xyrus is a loving and energetic, 4-year-old boy with autism, who loves to learn, swim, play with his sister, and make new friends with his new found language! With the support of an in-home Respite Worker, Xyrus’ parents have been able to step away from the constant care required for a child with special needs. His parents are able to rest, knowing he is in the hands of someone who is trained and genuinely cares for their son and their family as a whole!

Inclusive Childcare

Inclusive Childcare provides a safety net for working parents and an opportunity for children with special needs to be included in a typical after school care setting. Highly skilled one-on-one aides work collaboratively with center staff to properly assess, evaluate and include special needs children with their developmentally typical peers. This program focuses on children who are not able to attend pre-school, childcare or afterschool program without additional support. We facilitate the inclusion of a child with special needs into the typical program offered while increasing communication, promoting socialization, improving self-care skills, and decreasing maladaptive behaviors.

Budget  $1,169,247.00
Category  Health Care, General/Other Family Services for Adolescent Parents
Population Served Families
Program Short-Term Success 

Our goal is to increase community collaborations and partnerships by two centers a month, therefore increasing awareness.

Program Success Monitored By 

The success of this program is monitored by feedback from families who participate in the programs.

Examples of Program Success 
“I could not have requested more from a service than what we receive from UCP-OC,” shared Deshawn’s father, Brayan. Deshawn and Brayan are an unbreakable family unit. Together, they have created a life filled with fun and adventure, despite the many obstacles they face.

Deshawn’s diagnosis of Optic Nerve Hypoplasia is likely the reason for his additional diagnosis of Global Development Delays. Deshawn may be non-verbal, but he is determined to communicate and is making huge improvements. Today, Deshawn is learning sign language and isn’t afraid to use his favorite sign, “more.” “Whether it’s more food or more music, Deshawn is always ready for more,” Brayan jokes.

As a single father, Brayan relies on the services of UCP-OC. For three years, Deshawn has received UCP-OC’s Respite and Inclusive Childcare services. Through these programs, Deshawn is paired with a trained caregiver that enables him to participate in a traditional after-school program, and who can watch Deshawn while Brayan is at work.

 


Recreation

The UCP of Orange County Recreation Center offers a variety of seasonal recreational activities in the evenings and on weekends to elementary aged children, teens, and young adults. We collaborate with community organizations and experts in their fields to instruct many of our recreation programs and give our families unique opportunities.

Examples of Program Success 
Ava was born six weeks early with Down syndrome. Now 17-years-old and an active sophomore in high school, she has enjoyed many years of participating in UCP-OC inclusive recreation classes for fitness, dance and gymnastics, where she met her two best friends.

UCP-OC’s programs give Ava different social opportunities she loves, such as sailing for a month! These classes bring her opportunities to experience new interests and to express herself to the fullest.
