More than 65% of people served by UCP have disabilities other than cerebral palsy, including Down Syndrome, Autism Spectrum Disorder, physical disabilities and traumatic brain injury (TBI).
United Cerebral Palsy (UCP)
What differentiates UCP from other disability organizations is its commitment to provide support throughout the lifespan of a person with a disability with special emphasis on key moments of transition: birth to early childhood, early childhood to school, school to early adulthood and into the aging years.
United Cerebral Palsy (UCP) educates, advocates and provides support services to ensure a life without limits for people with a spectrum of disabilities, including Down Syndrome, Autism Spectrum Disorder, physical disabilities and traumatic brain injury (TBI).
This is achieved by providing services and support to more than 176,000 children and adults every day, one person at a time, one family at a time. UCP works to enact system change to revolutionize care, raise standards of living and create opportunities impacting the lives of millions of people living with disabilities and their families.
Donate Through Workplace Giving
One of the best ways to support United Cerebral Palsy is to donate to us through your workplace giving program (or the Combined Federal Campaign if you're a Federal employee). If your employer does not have a payroll deduction campaign or does not offer the choice of giving to United Cerebral Palsy, ask about bringing America's Charities to your workplace. America's Charities works with employers to develop employee-friendly, cost-effective workplace giving campaigns that benefit charities like ours.
