Help me raise $40 from 40 friends to support UCP of Greater Cleveland, a nonprofit in our community serving children and adults with disabilities. Together, we can help create more stories like Jayce's:
Jacyce is an engaging five-year-old who loves bugs and cars. Jayce was diagnosed with Spinal Muscular Atrophy, which is a genetic disorder affecting part of the nervous system that controls voluntary muscle movement. It makes moving around on his own very difficult. Jayce's work with his LeafBridge therapists at UCP of Greater Cleveland has strengthened his muscles and supported him in learning how to use a power wheelchair. They have also assisted Jayce in learning how to use assistive technology to access the computer. The world now knows how truly smart and funny Jayce really is!
With our support, the staff and clients at UCP of Greater Cleveland witness miracles every day. At LeafBridge, A Center of Excellence for Children with Disabilities, their experienced occupational, physical and speech-language therapists provide innovative and life changing therapeutic interventions for our youngest clients. At OakLeaf, A Center of Excellence for Adults with Disabilities, their well-trained, committed employment specialists provide workforce readiness training and ongoing support services to ensure our adult clients successfully transition into and retain meaningful employment in the community.
As a member of the UCP Board of Directors I know that this agency does great work. Please support my efforts to raise money for this outstanding organization. I am asking forty people to donate $40—that’s $1,600, enough to provide a child like Jayce speech-language and occupational therapy for a whole month. UCP of Greater Cleveland serves more than 1,000 people with all different kinds of disabilities, both children and adults. To find out more about the organization please visit: www.ucpcleveland.org.
