Upcounty Community Resources

Upcounty Community Resources (UCR) is a small non-profit with a HUGE mission and impact. Located in upper Montgomery County, they provide weekend enrichment programs –  “guys night out”, “girls on the town” and “TGIF – Totally Great Inclusive Fun” to name just a few. The intent is to help reduce the stigma sometimes associated with having an intellectual or developmental disability, and help those with disabilities integrate seamlessly into their community.

Who They Are

UCR is a private, non-profit organization who believes we are enriched by all persons in our community. They promote the full inclusion of persons with developmental and intellectual differences into every aspect of community life.

They offer innovative programs, events, and social opportunities for adults with developmental and intellectual differences; promoting healthy lifestyles, friendships, self-awareness, and personal-development.

What They Do 

UCR offers innovative programs, events, and social opportunities for adults with developmental and intellectual differences. These opportunities promote healthy lifestyles, friendships, self-awareness, and personal-development. For a complete list of ALL the opportunities – please click on the “PROGRAMS” tab when you get to their homepage (click here).

What Else Should I Know

UCR’s program leaders are experienced professionals who work with our staff to ensure each member’s experience is a success. Some programs run as drop-in and some run for several-sessions over consecutive months. Some activities are perfect for anyone; others require a particular interest or skill.
