Helping people live independently at home, develop job skills and integrate into their own communities.

At UCP we offer several programs under the umbrella of our Partners in Care model, which provides a comprehensive set of services to people with disabilities in Western MA that want to live more independently in their own homes and communities. Programs are based on each individuals level of need, the participants age and funding sources. In each of these programs UCP also offers assistive technology and durable medical equipment evaluations and referrals to people who need it, along with educational advocacy.

UCP’s Supported Living Programs include our Adult Family Care Program, Shared Living Program, Supported Living Program and In-Home Support. These programs combined, offer a variety of options, based on your age and funding eligibility, to help people with complex medical, physical or developmental disabilities live more independently and to safely remain in the comfort of their own homes. We also support people living in their own apartments with the help of Smart Home Technology and high-tech staff support.

Community Integration Programs include Community Day Program, Agency with Choice and Autism Only Program. These day programs are customized to help people with disabilities in Western MA integrate into their communities and increase their social and recreational activities. Our program is for children and adults who are receiving services from the Department of Developmental Services (DDS).

Our Customized Employment Program is designed to help adults seeking competitive, integrated work.

UCP’s Adult Family Programs: Changing Lives

When UCP reached into the community to look for support for one of our members with disabilities from Western MA, they found a young couple that were looking to open up their home to help. After our member met with the family several times, he did a sleepover and spent the weekend. While the process took several weeks to complete, a match was made and our member moved into their home in Berkshire County. Thanks to UCP, he now has a new home and a new family!
