Program Accomplishments


Job Training and Employment

Job training and employment services are provided for people with intellectual/developmental disabilities. Individual programs are developed through a person centered planning process. UCP of Nevada also helps people learn pre-vocational skills and overcome barriers to prepare them for future vocational activities. Participation in community activities and volunteer jobs are often included.

Recreation and Life-Enrichment Services

In many situations, United Cerebral Palsy Team Members participate in services that combine vocational training and life enrichment programs. The life enrichment program may include: community based recreational and social opportunities, vocational exploration, educational programs, cooking classes, hiking, swimming, and accessing the Internet in our computer labs.

UCP of Nevada served 74 people in job training and employment and recreation/life-enrichment services in Reno and Sparks, NV. UCP of Nevada served 21 people in Elko, NV.

Vocational Evaluation

In Cooperation with the Nevada Bureau of Vocational Rehabilitation and the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs, United Cerebral Palsy helps to assess the vocational strengths and barriers of people with disabilities through temporary employment in a retail environment.

UCP of Nevada served 100 people with disabilities through vocational evaluations last fiscal year.
