In an effort to minimize the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus), The Office of People With Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD) has directed all providers to temporarily suspend operations of site-based programs beginning today, March 17, 2020.  UCP of Long Island has closed all day programs and only the Residential Programs will continue to operate during this temporary closure period.

We continue to monitor all guidance from local, state and federal agencies, and will update this webpage with any new information related to closures. 

We realize the impact suspension of our day programs has on our families, staff and the people we support, however it is critical we take action to limit the spread of illness.   We appreciate your understanding as we work together to ensure the health and safety of our community.  

All of us at UCP of Long Island remain committed to serving our families in these challenging times. If you have any concerns about meeting the immediate support needs of your loved one, please email us at and we will work to identify alternative solutions. We thank you for your continued patience and partnership.


Life Without Limits for People with Disabilities™

What began in 1950 with a small group of parents seeking support for their children with cerebral palsy has evolved into one of the most far-reaching and successful providers of services to people with a wide range of disabilities on Long Island.

Since its inception, UCP of Long Island has been committed to advancing the independence, productivity and full citizenship of people with disabilities by creating Life Without Limits.
