OUR MISSION: UCP of Central Arizona provides comprehensive services to individuals with disabilities and their families by providing physical and developmental support as well as educational growth which is the foundation for independent living. "Life without Limits" OUR VISION: Individuals with disabilities will achieve their potential and experience equality in the community.
At UCP of Central Arizona, we are more than just our name. Many of the individuals we serve have delays or disabilities that were undiagnosed or misunderstood in prior years. As research and medicine advance, so does the ability to detect brain abnormalities, genetic conditions and many other diagnoses affecting development. What they all hold in common is the need for expertise, uncompromised quality of care, and an organization made up of individuals who provide hope through an wavering focus on abilities, not disabilities. This effort has always been at the core of UCP's work.
Since 1952, UCP has served as one of the oldest private, nonprofit health and human service organizations in Arizona. Every year, our highly trained therapists, educators and direct care support professionals improve the lives of thousands of individuals with disabilities and their families. We are continually striving to develop new and innovative ways to provide programs and services to meet the needs of those we serve. What will never change is our focus on bringing hope, expertise and support one person at a time, one family at a time.
We'll work with your schedule.
