Resource Guides for People with any Disability
By visiting the UCP Web site, individuals with disabilities and their families can now easily access contact information for organizations, nonprofit service providers, and state government offices in every state in the nation.
People with disabilities, parents of young children with a new diagnosis, caregivers, and advocacy organizations can use these resources to locate information about early intervention, assistive technology, employment, housing, transportation, and many more topics.
Though UCP and its nationwide affiliate network will continue to offer free one-to-one information and referral services to the public, anyone with access to the Internet now can find information on their own with this easily accessible resource.
Each one-stop resource guide is free and can be downloaded as a Microsoft Word or Adobe PDF document. Information and referral resources listed in each guide are organized in alphabetical categories with complete contact information, so anyone can find the information and services they need.
"Staying informed and knowing where to find help are huge steps towards achieving full independence," said Margaret "Muffi" Lavigne, UCP Information and Referral Coordinator. "These guides are some of the most complete community-based resource listings for people with disabilities available today."
To access the one-stop resource guides, visit the Resources section of the UCP Web site. Information seekers who need one-to-one information and referral service can contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
