UCP of Los Angeles, Ventura and Santa Barbara Counties (UCPLA) was founded in 1945 by a small group of parents who wanted to create community-based services for their children with developmental disabilities and similar service needs when no such services existed.


While UCPLA has grown significantly since our inception, we remain true to our mission to advance the independence, productivity and full citizenship of children and adults with developmental disabilities and those with similar service requirements. Our programs and services keep pace with the need for services, programs, resources and support groups to provide our clients and their families equal opportunities to choose and to participate in lifestyles that enable them to live in and contribute to their own communities.
