Keeping the Social Interactions Going!

ALL Programming at UTH for social groups/ social meetups is listed on this page. This page is used for enrollment.

Enrollment is now open for the various social programs which at this time being ALL offered in a stand alone format.  You pick the ones that work for your schedule, age, and social needs. 

This page is frequently updated. So please check back.

TIPs for navigating signup!

  • All events are drop off.  NO parent stays with the member.  Members also do not go home early, they stay for the full duration of the event.
  • If a social activity has *** in front that means it is part of United Through HOPE’s League of Friends (LOF) or Just Girls Time Please (JGTP) programs and has a different pricing structure to accommodate special pricing for activities that are included.  LOF has a special t-shirt that must purchased and worn for it.
  • If members are wanting a more in depth social experience it is suggested the member pick back to back activities!  The longer length pushes the social stamina!  When choosing back to back the member can have transportation from certain locations PLUS they stay in between for no extra charge (yep more social time!)
  • All new members wishing to participate in the group based social programming offered on this page will be required to participate in a ZOOM based intake as a screening measure for the social group based programming offered on this page.
  • Members who are returning to UTH after a long absence (over a 16 months) or had significant difficulties in the past at events may be requested to participate in a zoom intake to see if they meet the current expectations of the programs they wish to be involved in.
  • There are gaps in between events offered on the same day because of the need to transport members between events and locations and also to allow new members to join in while others are leaving and need to hear feedback.  If a member stays in multiple events each day, they are not picked up and instead engage in more social time.

Some caveats to consider as you are navigating the events. 

  • The social events on this page, and any offered by UTH, may not be appropriate for everyone.  UTH staff makes that determination.
  • The social events on this page, and any offered by UTH, are NOT designed to be traditional therapy.  They are meant to provide supervised opportunities to be social and not be viewed as “therapy.”
  • Please recognize not everyone is ready (emotionally, developmentally, physically, socially, etc.) for the UTH structure, expectations, or for a particular event.  The member attending is expected to use the various the skills they have been previously taught at home, school, therapies, etc. in the various situations and parents are expected to help with follow through if they want the member to grow.  UTH staff will coach the members to apply their skills they have been previously taught, HOWEVER there is no guarantee the member will comply.
