The Person Centered Advocacy Program makes it possible for parents to receive the technical know-how and the morale and emotional support they need when advocating for the rights of their children. Advocates also provide intake and referral services, specialized trainings and workshops, support group meetings, and assistance in accessing community services.

 

UCP Detroit offers information and referral on assistive technology, which can make a difference in the lives of persons with disabilities by enhancing their ability to be independent, obtain and maintain employment, and integrate within their communities. Technology can be provided to address needs in the areas of mobility, communication, learning, transportation, independent living and more.

 

UCP Detroit is committed to working with individuals with disabilities in educating them on the benefits of going to work and exploring the array of options for obtaining employment. UCP Detroit understands the many barriers to employment for persons with disabilities and the need for supports and services. We offer assistance to address those barriers and help to identify resources that will enable individuals to become financially independent through jobs of their choice.

 

UCP Detroit sponsors a Support Group for persons with all types of disabilities, their families and friends. Meetings are currently held at their office on the second Tuesday of each month from 10:00am-12:00pm. People come together to share experiences, gain knowledge, and offer support to each other. The group is run by its participants.

UCP Detroit staff offer assistance when needed, such as information on various topics, speakers, workshops, and more.

 

The Quick Ramps for Kids program provides free portable wheelchair ramps to families of children who experience Cerebral Palsy and other paralysis causing conditions.  Quick Ramps are a fast and inexpensive alternate to permanent ramps.  Best of all, they give a child immediate access to their community.  Applications are available online at http://www.quickrampsforkids.org or by calling UCP Detroit at 248-557-5070.
