From the Director's Chair

Hello, everyone.  United Cerebral Palsy of the Wabash Valley (UCPWV) would like to wish you all a very happy summer.  I wanted to take the time to introduce a new member of our staff who has come on-board with UCPWV. Shontelé Daugherty is our Consumer & Veteran Services Specialist.

Shontelé is coming to us with the help of a non-for-profit organization called The Mission Continues. The Mission Continues is empowering veterans who are adjusting to life at home to find purpose through community impact. By deploying veterans on new missions in their communities, their actions will inspire others. Through this unique model, veterans build new skills and networks that help them successfully reintegrate to life after the military while making long-term, sustainable transformations in communities and inspire future generations to serve.

All of our programs and services are in full-swing, and things are busy as always. Many exciting events are happening this year staring with our partnership with Buffalo Wild Wings. If you attend any Buffalo Wild Wings location on June 6th please present the ticket below & you will be donating 10% of your bill to UCPWV.

We are very excited to be partnering with the city Parks Department at Fairbanks Park for Rib Fest. In late August, United Cerebral Palsy of the Wabash Valley (UCPWV) has the Haute Hunt kicking off, this event on the 20th of August, Haute Hunt an urban scavenger hunt in downtown Terre Haute. Each team will be given a list of clues to follow with selfies taken at every turn. The team with the shortest time to complete all clues wins the event and a financial prize. Participants will finish the day at Rib Fest. Yum!!!

We also have an event on September 17th, The Wingy Dingy Thingy in partnership with the Terre Haute Airport. This event is a great opportunity to taste chicken wings from 20 restaurants all over Terre Haute and at the end of the event, with the opportunity to name the best wings in town. All proceeds collected over the various fundraising events support all the programs here at UCPWV – Giving opportunity to those living with disabilities.

These partnerships allow United Cerebral Palsy of the Wabash Valley & Wabash Valley Veteran Services to make a greater impact in the community, also allowing us to put the fun back in Terre Haute. These are just a few of the things that are happening. 

Our achievements are continually fueled and supported by our inspiring, smart, and dedicated Board of Directors, staff, donors, and partners.  Everyone plays such an important role and helps make it possible to provide our consumers with programs and services of the highest quality while also promoting agency growth.
