I mentioned in an earlier post that UCP-OC continues to grow!
We are veryexcited looking at the growth of our organization. We are serving nearly 4,000 families despite the budget cuts! This means that more families are recieving our programs, more children are participating in our recreational activities and more parents are getting the support they need. Which ulitmately leads to our vision of a Life Without Limits for children with disabilities. So spread the word about UCP-OC, we would love to serve more people in our community.
Also, stay tuned as we roll out new ways for you to get involved this fall and holiday season. We have been planning and designing many ways for you to get engaged with our organization.
To meet this growth we have also hired another new employee.
Eunice is a 2009 graduate of UC Santa Cruz with a degree in Sociology. When she is not busy at work she loves to try new restaurants and cuisines. Her favorite movie is Elf and likes to drink tea instead of coffee in the morning. She absolutely loves the fall season because of everything scent and food-related to pumpkin spice that comes out.
Before joining the UCP-OC staff as the Administrative Assistant in Fund Development, she worked heavily on the UC Santa Cruz campus as an undergraduate in community organizing and social justice-oriented programs and continued that commitment to promoting social good in her post-graduation positions at other nonprofit organizations. She is very excited about getting be a part of the UCP-OC staff, and humbled and inspired by the incredible passion of the staff, families, and children at UCP-OC.
