Dear friend of UCP,Mother and child photo

You’re keeping families together. We all want what’s best for our nation’s children. You believe strong families are the key to a better future, and they’re worth your investment.


Over the past year, we have shared with you personal stories of real people being served by United Cerebral Palsy people’s lives made better because of supporters like you.

You ‘ve heard stories from individuals like:

  • Janelle, a mom to five kids, needing early intervention services for her sons in asupportive environment for the entire family
  • Dan, a young student athlete with cerebral palsy, determined that his life is without limits
  • Mary, a grandmother who stepped into a caregiving role for her grandson with severe disabilities

   You are part of the solution. You answer the needs of individuals like Janelle, Dan, Dan Hoffman Photoand Mary-and their families.  Our families, and our communities are filled with caring people who understand the joy of helping others. UCP brings people together locally and nationally to leverage that heartfelt commitment. Through nearly 80 local affiliates and our national office in Washington. DC, UCP provides and coordinates services to more than 176,000 children and adults every day.

Our voice is heard and respected around the world, making us truly part of a global movement for change for people with disabilities.
