BOARD OF DIRECTORS

UCP of Arkansas is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors made up of a diverse group of members.  Each member is encouraged to participate actively on Board Committees, at UCP functions, in advocacy throughout the community, and in fundraising through professional and personal connections.

“[We are] doing all we can to help people with developmental disabilities live a life without limits.”
