    UCP-OC- A Local Charity Helping Children with Disabilities Worthy of Your Time, Talents, and Financial Gifts.

    Newport Beach Law Firm

    With so many great causes in our
    community, it can be difficult for families and donors to choose which charity
    they should support with their time, talents, or financial gifts.  As an attorney who advises many high-net
    worth individuals and donors, and also as a member of local organizations
    dedicated to philanthropic causes, I’ve found that charities worthy of support
    offer more than a great cause, but also the leadership, vision, and internal
    framework necessary to truly make a difference in people’s lives. This is why I
    believe that United Cerebral Palsy Center of Orange County deserves your

    UCP-OC serves children with all
    types of developmental disabilities and provides vital support to families.
    Each year, they provide direct services to nearly 4,000 families, 86% of
    whom have a primary disability other than cerebral palsy. Their goal is to help
    children with disabilities live “Life Without Limits”.

    I first learned of UCP-OC when
    one of my young children experienced speech delay.  And while it is a minor challenge compared to
    what many children at UCP-OC are facing, my husband and I still experienced the
    fear, frustration, and helplessness that many parents do when you want to help
    your child and don’t know where to turn. I recall sitting in a UCP-OC play room
    after our child’s initial evaluation and hearing the speech therapist tell us
    “he has some work to do, but don’t worry, we can fix this. We can and will help
    him.” From that point on, we knew we were in the right hands. 

    We’re grateful to UCP-OC for
    helping our son overcome his challenge, and even more grateful for the way they did it. From the friendly face
    at the reception desk each visit, to the special waiting area with toys and
    coffee welcoming the whole family, to the speech therapists personally
    committed to making our child feel important and each session count, to the
    proven leadership under Cathleen Collins that ensures families will get the
    education, resources, and support necessary to help the little ones under their
    care thrive—UCP-OC is more than just a great cause—it is a special charity that
    truly makes a difference in the lives of children with disabilities and their

    I hope that as you consider which
    charities are worthy of your support, that you reach out to UCP-OC and learn
    how you can be part of the special difference they are making in children’s
    lives. For more information on UCP-OC, visit
