"Life Without Limits" Capital Campaign
UCP Seguin believes that all people, regardless of ability, deserve to achieve their potential, advance their independence and act as full members of the community. So we stop at nothing to provide life skills training, assistive technology, meaningful employment and a place to call home for people with disabilities, as well as specialized foster care for children. Our goal: life without limits for people with disabilities.
To further this mission, we are launching the “Life Without Limits” Capital Campaign 2017-2018. The goal of this endeavor is to raise $1.6 million to establish a new UCP Seguin center to provide community inclusive Employment and Life Skills Training services within DuPage County, establish an innovative, technologically advanced residential home for four individuals within DuPage County known as an IHOME and provide needed maintenance to current UCP Seguin residential homes and centers providing safe, accessible and functional sites.
To enable UCP Seguin to reach this campaign goal, we look to you—the generous donor—to become an “investor”, to help to bring about life without limits for people with disabilities. With your financial support, you will enable individuals with multiple intellectual, developmental, and physical challenges to achieve their potential, advance their independence, and act as full members of the community. Through your generosity you can foster personal growth and a sense of hope among persons with significant disabilities, by providing them with the environments within which that growth can be attained.
