United Cerebral Palsy of the Inland Empire’s philosophy of “Life should be Without Limits for Children with Special Needs” expands beyond our direct services. UCPIE does not believe in turning any family away because their need is outside of our scope of services. With this in mind UCPIE created our Resource & Referral Program. Through our outreach work, networks, associations, professional relationships with like agencies and groups, we have built a knowledge base of where to send a family for the help they need, not provided by UCPIE. The following are Resource Guides & Links we have found helpful:
