What People Are Saying...
I remember the early mornings and our long drives to get our Hannah to UCP each morning before work.  It was well worth the trip.  UCP laid for us a solid foundation for inclusion and a life without limits for Hannah. When I look at where she is and we are today, and how far Hannah has come, my thoughts always return to those first 5 1/2 years of her life at UCP.  We are forever grateful for the knowledge they imparted to us and the love they showed to Hannah.
