Colliers International | Pittsburgh is proud to announce that Edward Lawrence MBA, Associate, has been appointed to the United Cerebral Palsy/Community Living and Support Services (UCP/CLASS) Board of Directors. He previously served as an active member of the UCP/CLASS House Committee for more than a year, and helped to advise on matters related to housing and real estate.
United Cerebral Palsy/Community Living and Support Services (UCP/CLASS) is a nonprofit organization that offers different services to individuals of varying abilities. Previously known as UCP of Pittsburgh, UCP/CLASS is growing into new regions, and expanding its services.
Ed’s father, Edward R. Lawrence Jr., served as Board President in the early 1990’s, and helped to reinforce the value of his involvement in the organization. “UCP/CLASS provides a valued service to the Pittsburgh community,” Lawrence said of the organization. “Its long time CEO, Dr. Al Condeluci has been an effective leader for over the past 25 years, growing UCP/CLASS in size and scope. My role and responsibility as a member of the Board will be to advise and consent to the best of my ability on general business matters and strategic planning of the organization.”
UCP/CLASS will celebrate 60 years of providing service to the disability community with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at its new facility at 1400 South Braddock Ave. on September 12th at 4:00 p.m. For more information on the event, please visit the UCP/CLASS website.
UCP/CLASS is driven by organizational values that foster community inclusion for people with disabilities, and offers a variety of individualized services ranging from independent living skills training in the classroom to the community-based case management for social, recreational, and residential supports.
Colliers International | Pittsburgh congratulates Edward Lawrence for his continued involvement with this special organization and his dedication to helping individuals of varying abilities and people with disabilities in the Pittsburgh community.
