Remembering Rob DeBlois

The UCAP School, Founder and Director 

On Friday, January 31, 2020, we lost our Founder and former Director, Rob DeBlois.

Rob founded The UCAP School 30 years ago because he believed that we needed to stop looking at children who are at risk as “other people’s children” and embrace them as our own. 

Even after Rob retired last June, UCAP students and alumni would often stop in to tell us how much he had changed their lives. That their lives are better because of Rob and The UCAP School. 

As we mourn the loss of this great visionary and leader, we are even more aware of the importance of continuing his life’s work. The UCAP School is honored to carry out his mission for our students and for the community.
