UCP of New York City is a longtime leader in advocating for the rights of individuals with disabilities. As the founding affiliate of the UCP national network,  our historical efforts raising awareness gave birth to great advances in care for children and adults with disabilities, as well as to the civil rights movement responsible for the Americans with Disabilities Act.

With concerns regarding the New York State budget, we ask our families and supporters to use their voices to help us continue to secure critical services for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

To stay informed and add your voice, please join our mailing list.

Direct support professionals (DSPs) and other low-wage workers at agencies that provide support to people with disabilities and their families are not treated fairly by the State of New York.

These dedicated professionals do much more than the minimum, yet most earn little more than minimum wage. The only way that can change is for the Governor and the Legislature to act.
