"UCP Seguin believes in a world where children and adults with disabilities achieve their potential, advance their independence and act as full members of the community."
FY15 Holiday Appeal
Welcome to UCP Seguin
Seguin Services merged with United Cerebral Palsy of Greater Chicago in July 2013. We are now known as United Cerebral Palsy Seguin of Greater Chicago, which is a charitable not-for-profit agency serving individuals with disabilities in metropolitan Chicago and beyond.
UCP Seguin believes in a world where children and adults with disabilities achieve their potential, advance their independence and act as full members of the community. We strive to make this world a reality--in Illinois and beyond, for people at every stage of life--by leveraging technology to provide innovative training and educational programs, family support, employment, life-skills training and residential services.
Help UCP Seguin Build Bridges To The Future
Nine nonprofit agencies have combined their expertise in serving adults with developmental disabilities to form a unique partnership under the auspices of The Coleman Foundation and the Intersect for Ability Coalition. We have initiated the Building Bridges to the Future program to serve the needs of special education students and their families as they face the challenges of transitioning successfully from high school to adult services.
Help us serve these students and their families by donating today or creating your own fundraiser to benefit the Building Bridges to the Future program. Donate on our secure donation page or create your own mini-fundraiser to benefit Building Bridges to the Future and go to www.crowdrise.com/ucpseguin.

This holiday season offers two opportunities for you to support UCP Seguin programs & services in a BIG way! An anonymous and very generous friend of UCP Seguin has pledged to match the first $10,000 in donations that benefit our Community Employment program. This program provides placement and training where individuals with special needs are employed in meaningful work within the community. Another way to make the most of your donation is by supporting the Building Bridges to the Future program. Building Bridges provides invaluable services to high school students with special needs and their families, allowing them to better navigate the path to adult services post-graduation. An anonymous foundation will match the first $9,100 from new donors or donors who increase their giving through this program. Two Challenges, Two Success Stories - and you can assist UCP Seguin in creating more success stories this holiday season.

UCP Seguin says THANK YOU to ABC7 Chicago Reporter Karen Meyer, a tireless advocate for persons with disability and a dear friend to UCP Seguin, who is retiring. Karen has been a trailblazer as a profoundly deaf television reporter who has reported on and advocated for persons with disabilities for over 20 years at ABC7. We have been fortunate that she has brought our message among others to the general public's attention. We'll miss you Karen Meyer--happy retirement.
