The sooner you start your journey, the farther you’ll go. That’s why UCPGB created Hand in Hand, one of the most advanced early learning programs in the nation for children with disabilities from birth to the age of five.
People with disabilities often have extreme medical needs. Which is why we work tirelessly to meet them. The result is a place children and adults can come for hope, healing, reassurance, and support. Quality of life is improved for the people we serve. And for the families who love them.
Think about what work means to you. Pride. Identity. Structure. Security. It’s no different for people with disabilities. When people with disabilities perform productive work in the community, eyes are opened. Attitudes are changed. And boundaries are blown away.

For a child at risk, early intervention is critical.
That's why visiting a child at home, at no cost to the family, is standard practice for UCP's Early Intervention Program.
