UCBDD’s mission is to ensure supports are available to people with disabilities. Our ability to fulfill this mission is at risk at the Harold Lewis Center. As our community grows, so does the number of pre-school students we support. We have grown by 25% in the last two years. We began preparing for this space need over a year ago.
The Harold Lewis Center is occupied by the UCBDD pre-school and by a private business, World of Wonders Childcare (WOW). In June 2016, UCBDD notified WOW of UCBDD’s intent to utilize all of the space at the Harold Lewis Center. Per the agreement between the two entities, UCBDD was required to give 30 days’ notice. UCBDD gave over one year’s notice.
