Securing Tomorrow’s Promise: Jim Ping’s Impact at URS

United Rehabilitation Services: A Beacon of Hope

Jim ‘JP’ Ping and London

United Rehabilitation Services (URS) stands as a beacon of hope, offering unique and comprehensive programs for individuals with disabilities and their families. Families like Charisse Odom’s find invaluable support in URS for her daughter, London, born in 2016 with microcephaly and Cerebral Palsy.

London is a participant in URS’ Early Childhood Education Programs, where she benefits from integrated nursing and therapy services. This setup allows Charisse to manage her time efficiently, as London receives essential physical, occupational, and speech therapies during her preschool hours. URS uniquely combines childcare with on-site nursing and therapy, catering to the needs of medically fragile children.
