“Our Adult Day Programs across the region really showcase our work to empower people with developmental disabilities to live life without limits,” said Doug Bergman, UCP president and CEO. “We hope people will come out to Woodland to meet our participants and experience their energy and excitement first-hand.”

UCP’s Woodland Adult Day Program serves 53 people each day. Many participants also have a physical disability that requires additional support. The program helps participants develop skills and encourages individual choice. These skills promote an independent lifestyle and contribute to making the participant an active member of the community.

Each month, UCP of Sacramento and Northern California serves 3,300 children and adults with developmental disabilities and their families in Yolo, Butte, El Dorado, Nevada, Placer, Sacramento, Shasta and Sutter counties.

Programs include Saddle Pals adaptive horseback riding, UCP’s Autism Center for Excellence at Sacramento State, adult day programs, independent living services, transportation and in-home respite care for families.
