In the past year, more than 700 volunteers donated a collective 5,300+ hours of service to support and enhance UCP Central PA’s programs, services, mission, and above all, the people who benefit from those programs and services.
Our volunteers are ordinary people with extraordinary hearts, who give of their time and talents to make life without limits a reality for thousands of individuals with disabilities and the families who care for them. Whether they share their time and talents at our centers and group homes in the community, serve on our boards or committees, assist with special events, or work as advocates in the community, UCP’s volunteers make a difference in the lives of our neighbors.
Rebecca, an aspiring Interior Designer, is able to use her passion for art, as well as her compassionate heart, to work alongside the Branch Creek Neighbors Adult Day Program participants in creating something that is not only beautiful to look at, but has a purpose as artwork.
One definition of an Everyday Hero is “one who works tirelessly to help keep our communities safe, productive, and enjoyable” and who does so “not for public recognition, but for the personal fulfillment they receive in helping others.” Dick Radcliff fits that description to a tee.

“Through my involvement over the years, I have met many individuals and families who receive services through UCP. There is one constant message I hear: they all greatly appreciate the wonderful staff and programs of UCP. Without a doubt, we are a better community because of UCP.”
