     Emily creates a canvas for UCP's          "Hit  the Links" golf tournament


Emily Jaekel is 19 years old.  She began painting in 2014 when a Gretna High School art teacher, Jill Janke, approached her BASE room teacher and asked if she had any students interested in painting. Emily has Cerebral Palsy, which makes her unable to paint with the common tools such as paintbrushes. Read More
 Family Focus...


On April 24th families enjoyed an evening of baseball between the Omaha Storm Chasers & the Memphis Redbirds. Complimentary hot dogs & drinks were available for families as well as the kids play zone for children to enjoy. 




On May 2nd, we provided a free showing of  "Despicable Me"  at the Grand Theater in Grand Island and we also showed 
"Inside Out"  in Norfolk on June 20th.  Both events included free admission and snacks to enjoy during the movie.  




Our Family Focus event at the ALLPLAY Complex in June was a great day for everyone!  The families enjoyed playing baseball at the fully accessible park, splashing at the spray ground followed by some awesome barbeque.  Thank you to  Hartland Bar-B-Que  and  Rotella's Italian Bakery  for donating the pork and buns for our event! 

UCP's Family Focus program offers a variety of fun events for families of all ages either at no-cost or a very minimal fee.  If you are interested in attending and have not already joined our contact list please email coc@ucpnebraska.org
