Program Without Walls
The UCP Program Without Walls (PWW) offers a hands-on community-integrated program tailored to the specific needs and requests of the customer. The customer along with their parent/caretaker, coordinator, teacher and the PWW manager work as a team to design a program that allows the customer the opportunity to set and reach their goals and objectives.
Together, they design and plan of activities that will allow them to reach their desired goals and objectives. With each participant’s objectives in mind, they plan activities to assist in reaching each goal, and implement them through the programs design.

UCP Canister Program – Giving that makes “Cents”
You see them all the time as you pay for groceries or your morning cup of coffee. You may even see them so much you hardly notice them anymore, but that small canister at the register of your local grocery store, gas station or diner helps make a big difference to agencies like United Cerebral Palsy.
For more than a decade, UCP has worked with more than 37 local businesses that have volunteered to place these canisters in their venues. These partnerships help raise over $10,000 every year to support UCP programs and services.
Two years ago, Program Without Walls, an adult day community based program, took over the Canister Program as their community project. Individuals in the program are responsible for advertising the program, delivering canisters, picking up and sorting donations and turning donations into UCP’s corporate office. 20% of the total donations collected go to the PWW Advocacy Account that funds field trips for consumers to theme parks, museums, and aquariums.
The participation of businesses is vital to the ongoing success of the Canister Program. We would like to thank our current canister participants for their continued support and partnerships. A special thank you to the Volunteer Center in San Andreas who manages this fundraiser for us in the foothills.
