The Affiliate Network is diverse in their budget size ($125,000 to $260 million), the services they offer and individuals served. They provide a wide range of services for individuals including those with cerebral palsy, complex medical needs and intellectual and developmental disabilities. Those services may include but are limited to: housing, therapies, assistive technology training, early intervention services, individual and family support, social and recreational programs, community living, state and local referrals, employment, employment assistance and advocacy. Approximately 35% of the individuals served by affiliates have cerebral palsy.
An Affiliate Portal is in the process of being developed so that affiliates will have secure access to information specific to UCP affiliates.
