A Message From Our President/CEO

  I am truly honored to be serving as the President and CEO of UCP-LI.  This organization has a 70 year rich history of providing the highest quality of services to children and adults with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities of all kinds. We are successful because we employ over 1,000 caring and dedicated staff who all do their part to ensure we are supporting each individual’s pursuit of a LIFE WITHOUT LIMITS.

COVID-19 has challenged us but we continue to work together to keep moving forward. Our front-line staff and their leadership teams continue to work tirelessly to keep people safe, healthy and happy. We are inspired by them every day and are grateful for their dedication.

This has been a time of change for our organization and our field.  We are continuing to learn how to use technology to improve communications and our ability to provide education, health, day and employment services remotely.  We will take stock of the lessons we have learned and we will find better ways to support people now and in the future.

We look forward to the days when we can be together again to enjoy time with our UCP-LI family.  Until then, be well and stay safe. 

Colleen Crispino

President & CEO
