Who Is UCP?

 

Who is UCP?

UCP stands for United Cerebral Palsy, but our name doesn’t really tell you who we are.  That’s why, when we get asked the question about who we are and what we do, we reply with a simple answer: “UCP is amazing.”

It’s simple. UCP is amazing because each and every day our team members are out in the community working to make the lives of people with disabilities better.

What Does UCP Do?

We give kids and adults with developmental disabilities the tools and support to live a life without limits.

UCP gives adults and children with all types of developmental disabilities the chance to grow, thrive and feel included.  Through our programs and services, we offer individuals hope, confidence and promise.

Every day, UCP makes a difference in the lives of the people we work with. It’s pretty rewarding work. In fact, we think it’s amazing.
