Participant and Volunteer, UCPNB, Retired.  Board Member since 1990.

Born with Cerebral Palsy and having attended high school and college in the 1940’s, Ms. Martin has participated in the dramatic changes that have taken place for people with disabilities.   Her expertise and experience has been invaluable to the growth and development of services for children and adults with developmental disabilities in Sonoma, Napa, and Solano Counties.  Ms. Martin is a long-time advocate for persons with cerebral palsy and she provides support for all Board Committees of UCP of the North Bay.

UCP of the North Bay was one of 34 local nonprofit agencies that received a grant this year. Our $15,000 award from Valero Benefit for Children will support our Enhanced Transitional Program at Cypress School. The goal of the program is to successfully “transition” students from public school to Cypress School, from Cypress School back to public school whenever possible, and from Cypress School to Adult Employment Programs that provide community-based employment training and paid work opportunities.

We owe a special debt of gratitude to David Le, Valero Benicia Refinery Controller, who invited us to apply for the grant. The invitation, which is required, came as a result of his volunteerism and the volunteerism of other Valero Benicia Refinery Employees with our monthly Gone for Good Shredding Events in Fairfield. David presented the award to Margaret and Laura at the “Heart for Children” breakfast held at the Benicia Clock Tower on November 6. The event was very well attended by both sponsors and recipients.
