Coming September 15th, 2020: “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 successfully provided their first in-person outing opportunities this week. They started with 4 students and will add additional ABA participants next week. Others will be added as their funding is approved. In-person on campus instruction one day per week for school is planned to resume soon for those interested, coordinating with Sonoma County Department of Public Health. Students are now allowed in 16-person stable cohorts of staff and students, with 25% capacity and no intermingling between students and staff in each group. Distance Learning will continue the remaining days and for families who have requested to continue remotely fulltime.
Adult Day Program Update
Attendance in the United Cerebral Palsy of the North Bay Zoom Classes continues to increase each week. Participants are able to choose from several classes a week, with a variety of topics including work training, education, recreation, and wellness. Over the last week, our programs were attended by 82% of our participants across 3 counties. In addition, our Program Leaders contacted 98% of our participants by phone for daily wellness check-ins. This is a phenomenal achievement and we are appreciative of the positive impact that our program staff are having on our participants.
