Life is often described as a journey. As an ADHD family, our journey is anything but straightforward. We've learned to define success in our own way.

Welcome back! An intergenerational event welcoming people back to UUCD Services for a new season! Of course, you may always bring a friend. Remember to collect samples of the water you meet on your travels this summer, including your own backyard.
Have a very Happy Summer!
