Coming in September: “Flipside Thrift,” our new UCP of the North Bay Thrift Center, will be opening at 6591 Commerce Blvd. in Rohnert Park. UCP of the North Bay has owned and operated multiple thrift centers for many years in Solano, Sutter, Yolo, and Santa Cruz Counties – and now Sonoma County! All proceeds support our programs for children and adults with developmental disabilities.
UCP of the North Bay would like to give our sincere thanks and support to the first responders and emergency personnel that are battling the current fires, risking their safety so that we can be safe. Their courage and dedication is an inspiration to all of us who work to improve the lives of people with developmental disabilities living throughout the North Bay. On behalf of the entire UCP of the North Bay Community, thank you!
Cypress School Update
Cypress School continues their new and improved distance learning program. We are proud of the hard work of our teachers, therapists and staff to support students remotely during this challenging time. The state has announced exceptions allowing distance learning for special education students in small groups. The guidance stipulates 25% of the normal campus capacity and a ratio not to exceed 14 students and 2 staff. We await further clarification on this guidance to determine how to support students who require 1:1 and 1:2 support. The Cypress all-staff training on Wednesday will focus on behavior support and COVID-safe procedures on campus and in the community.
Adult Day Program Update
We are happy to report that our UCP of the North Bay staff members and participants who were forced to evacuate due to the fires burning in Sonoma, Napa, and Solano Counties, have all been able to return safely to their homes. We are truly grateful for the swift actions and dedicated care the team at UCP of the North Bay exhibited during these challenging times.
