WHAT WE DO
Day Program located in Modesto and Turlock provide services for members with various disabilities. During daily classes members are able to express their own ideas and creativity through music, art, and games.
Members in the community-based program interact with new people they meet on their outings, participate in community service, attend social excursions and stay healthy by participating in a variety of recreational activities.
Employment Services offers members with disabilities the opportunity to learn skills needed to obtain employment in our community. Job training is provided to individuals identified as prepared and more independent. Employment opportunities are available through one of four work crew assignments: janitorial, bus bench maintenance, landscaping and recycling.
Individual job placement opportunities are available for members when local businesses partner with us to foster inclusion in the workplace.
The annual Sips & Treasures event raises funds for UCP of Stanislaus County programs and services for adults with disabilities in our community. The event features live music with local talent, wine and beer tasting along with a succulent array of hors d’oeuvres catered by our host, Vintage Gardens. Join us for a spectacular evening in the Valley’s premier outdoor venue.
This year’s art contest winner holds a very special place in our hearts. Since the announcement of the winner, we learned of her passing. Our condolences to Donna’s family and friends. Donna was a bright and caring individual by heart. She was observant and advocated for those around her who didn’t have ability to speak up. Donna liked to keep to herself, for the most part, and follow her daily routine. While at UCP Day Program in Modesto, Donna enjoyed working on math, reading and writing. She also enjoyed participating in community outings when possible. Her favorite pastime was to relax and watch the TV series “Murder, She Wrote. We are honored to feature her creation with the community.
