United Cerebral Palsy's mission is to advance the independence, productivity, and full citizenship of people with disabilities and to provide support to family members.
UCP serves individuals with all types of disabilities. Our expertise is generally in service to individuals with physical disabilites which affect mobility. UCP also serves as the area clearinghouse for information about the condition known as cerebral palsy. At present, approximately 40% of UCP consumers have cerebral palsy, the second largest lifetime disability in the U.S. (mental retardation is the largest). 60% of the people UCP serves have physical disabilities other than cerebral palsy. These include such conditions as spina bifida, M.S., disability resulting from head and spinal cord injury, ALS, amputations, strokes, and heart attacks, and many lesser known physical disabilities.
