UCP of Southeastern Wisconsin is excited to announce we are changing our name to Broadscope Disability Services! Our former name no longer accurately represents the services we provide. We will continue to provide the much needed resources and support to families and individuals living with disabilities. Our broad range of services includes respite care, employment services, independent living and the Charlie Kapp Resource Center. Check back to see our new Broadscope website soon!

Respite Care Has Big Impact For Autism Parents
Parents of children with autism often report high levels of stress, but new research suggests that getting a caregiving break for as little as one hour a week can really make a difference.
Joe’s Run, Walk & Roll is a non-competitive 5k run or a 1, 2 or 3 mile fun run, walk or wheelchair roll. Participates who are wheelchair bound can roll right along family members and friends who may walk or run; where crossing the finish line is the accomplishment. A post run reception follows with great food, beverages, raffle and entertainment.
United Cerebral Palsy of Southeastern Wisconsin wishes to thank all of the generous supporters who donated, participated and volunteered at The MillerCoors Charlie Kapp Charity Golf Challenge. All of the proceeds help to advance the independence, productivity and quality of life of individuals challenged with physical, cognitive and developmental disabilities.
The Helen Bader Foundation has awarded UCP-SEW’s Employment Services program a grant of $40,000 to expand its work with job-seekers with disabilities living in six of Milwaukee’s poorest zip codes.
“We all know that people are unemployed, but the system treats unemployment as a one-size-fits-all situation and that’s not the reality of it,” said Jerry Roberts, workforce development program officer for the Helen Bader Foundation.
The Bader Foundation recently switched the thrust of its economic grants to bridging the persistent disconnect in the region between the chronic unemployed and jobs that go unfilled for lack of willing or qualified candidates.
