UCP of the Golden Gate Life without limits for people with disabilities™


UCP of the Golden Gate promotes, advocates, and supports the inclusion, independence, and empowerment of people with cerebral palsy and other disabilities.

Please Donate to UCPGG’s New Campus!

In December 2012, UCP of the Golden Gate acquired this beautiful 34,000 square foot building at 1521 Webster Street in downtown Oakland, California. Over time we intend to develop this facility into a multifaceted service platform that will provide programs and services in education, technology, and wellness to children and adults with all manner of disabilities from throughout the Bay Area. This central downtown location is ideal for our efforts to raise societal awareness of people with disabilities and help our clients become more integrated into the community.

In order to turn our “platform of dreams” into a reality, we need your help. Please donate what you can to support our efforts to make the Bay Area more inclusive. You can donate using the button below or by sending a check to: UCP of the Golden Gate, 1970 Broadway, Suite 115, Oakland, CA 94612.

UCPGG’s 2013 Ultimate Holiday Party Cancelled

We regret to inform you that due to financial constraints, UCP of the Golden Gate is cancelling our annual Ultimate Holiday Party this December.

Since our first event ten years ago, our holiday party has grown from 35 VIPs and 100 guests to averaging over 300 VIPs and 1,000 guests over the past three years. The costs for hosting the event have increased along with its growth in size and popularity, and we have made exhaustive efforts to obtain community support from individuals and corporations to help underwrite this wonderful party. Unfortunately, these efforts have been unsuccessful and we have made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s event.

For the past ten years, the staff at UCPGG has enjoyed being a part of your holidays and has received tremendous satisfaction from the feedback provided by the attendees. We realize the significance of this event in the lives of our VIPs and will continue to make every effort to obtain sufficient funding to host this event in 2014 and for many years to come.

When we resume, we look forward to seeing you and continuing to be a part of your holiday season.
