Thank you to our friends, donors and community partners for making our annual Dream Gala such an amazing success. Funds raised are being used to support UCP Heartland’s work to enact real change for people and families living with disabilities. Our Gala proceeds help UCP Heartland revolutionize care, raise standards of living and create opportunities—impacting the lives of millions living with disabilities.
Since 1953, UCPH has worked to ensure the inclusion of people living with disabilities in every facet of society. Together, with parents and caregivers, we will continue to push for the social, legal and technological changes that increase accessibility and independence, allowing people with disabilities to reach their own dreams, for the next 67 years, and beyond.
UCP Heartland hosts events throughout the year, from galas to trivia nights to chicken wing cooking competitions. Volunteers are needed to help with set-up, clean-up, and activities during events. Event times and dates vary.
