UCP National

United Cerebral Palsy (UCP) may be the one of the largest health charities in America today - but that wasn't the case in 1949. UCP would not be here today assisting thousands of people with disabilities and their families if it hadn't been for a group of parents who wanted to change the world for their children.

For more than 55 years, UCP (a.k.a. United Cerebral Palsy) has been committed to change and progress for persons with disabilities. The national organization and its nationwide network of 99 affiliates in 36 states, and the District of Columbia, strive to ensure the inclusion of persons with disabilities in every facet of society—from the Web to the workplace, from the classroom to the community. As one of the largest health charities in America, UCP's mission is to advance the independence, productivity and full citizenship of people with disabilities through an affiliate network.

On UCP National Website you will find information about UCP's national activities and efforts in addition to a search engine for your local affiliate. Even if you don't live in Orange County, you should be able to find a UCP affiliate in your area.

UCP has launched the My Child Without Limits website which has great information for families and care providers on a variety of developmental disabilities. The focus is on children 0-5.
