New Van Provides More Independence

A grant was approved from Las Patronas for UCP to purchase a vangently used wheelchair accessible van. Together with a most generous donation from Mr. & Mrs. R. Jefferies, it enabled us to purchase a 2016 Dodge Caravan Conversion. We can now get our participants out and further afield in the community.

For many of the participants in the North County ADC (Adult Developmental Center) Program, this is the only means of socialization, education, vocational and community integration stimulation they get.  It has already enabled us to get them to the San Diego Fair four times this summer, something many of the individuals would not have been able to do.

Thank you to Las Patronas and to Mr. & Mrs. Jefferies!
