D. Anecdote

From Noah Zemke, who purchased a van through UATP’s financing “We actually found the van on KSL and the previous owner told us about UATP. “The van enables us to do a lot more coming and going as it’s less difficult on us and on Finn. He’s so much more comfortable being transported and his younger brother and sister both love helping open and close the lift. I think the van represents endless opportunities and potential for our family as Finn gets bigger. It helps us know we will be able to continue to live the active lifestyle we enjoy without having to exclude Finn in our activities.”
