Adult Day Programs

Day programs designed for adults with developmental disabilities

UCP’s Adult Day Program gives developmentally disabled adults the chance to increase their independent living skills and reduce their feelings of isolation. Adults participating in the program work on daily living skills, verbal and non-verbal communication and community integration and awareness.
