UCP Connections to Independence staff helps ensure that you have access to the services and supports you need to enhance your quality of life so you can live more independently. Our Supports Coordinators have the expertise and resources to assist you in navigating the multitude of programs offered through the PA Department of Public Welfare and PA Department of Aging.

We work directly with UCP Central PA’s certified Assistive Technology (AT) Specialist, who can assist in determining what AT devices or services will increase your ability to interact independently at home, school, work, and in the community. Through UCP’s Assistive Technology Demonstration Center, we provide opportunities for hands-on testing of a variety of AT devices to find the ones that best suit your needs. Through the Changing Hands equipment exchange program, we provide restored and refurbished AT devices free of charge.
