Today, we'd like to spotlight one of our incredible @loandepot volunteers, Theresa Abelson!

Theresa has been involved with UCP-OC for over three years, first attending our gala and soon participating in craft days, fundraisers, and very recently bringing special toys and delicious treats to the kids and therapists at UCP.

Being a parent, she has found the mission of UCP-OC resonates with her in a very special way. It's important to her that she is giving back to her community while helping to enrich the lives of children. She has also already begun to instill a passion for giving back in her 9-year-old son, Alex!

Theresa's favorite memory with UCP is when she attended the loanDepot Mother's Day craft event at our therapy center. “As we were helping the children create handprint crafts for their parents, one of the kids said to me, ‘you should give one to your mom!’...and so I did!”

Thank you, Theresa, for being an incredible helping hand and heartfelt supporter of UCP-OC. Because of volunteers like you, and corporations like loanDepot, we can continue to impact the lives of the children and families in our community!

Congratulations to our newest CIMT graduate Sebastian for completing over 45 hours of intensive therapy! He traveled all the way from the Bay Area to participate in our innovative CIMT program. All of his hard work has paid off, as he has made significant gains in the overall strength and functional use of his right arm/hand. Playing with water beads, he worked on his hand strength grasping the spoon, wrist, and forearm strength scooping, pouring, and stirring the beads.

To learn more about this program, please visit ucpoc.org/cimt, or contact Frances at [email protected] or (949) 333-6432.

Hi everyone! I came here to look for options for bike riding and it looks like I may have come to the right place. ... I need some advice/ help, because I have no idea where to begin. (Affordable options) My wife has mild CP. She is 31, and has never ridden a bike. I convinced her to try an electric scooter a few years back, and it ended as quickly as it started, with very badly scraped arms and legs :( I get to take our children on bike rides, and feel horrible leaving her home, unable to join in the family bonding time. She'll never say it, but I know it breaks her heart as much as mine and our kids. Please, if you have any suggestions on how to modify a bike, or anything I need to know, that can help, I will be forever grateful!. Its mainly her legs that are affected (walks on ball of foot) . Should I somehow modify the pedals to account for her leg? Training wheels? . She is about 4'8ish" so a smaller bike. Thank you for your tone and advice!
Hi UCP-OC & friends! Please spread the word if you know of anyone with CP who might be interested in coming or supporting us in any way! Organized and created by disabled people, for disabled people. I want the CP community to embody and bring CPstrong to life by coming together and celebrating everything that CP means to us. Thank you!💫
