An estimated 57 million Americans live with a disability. Some need lots of support, others only a little…but all deserve to live a life without limits.
65% of people UCP serves have disabilities other than cerebral palsy.
Among U.S. adults, 1 in 4 – or 61 million people – live with some type of disability, and one-third of U.S. households have someone with a disability. Among people 65 and older, 2 in 5 have a disability, as do 1 in 4 women, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). About 6.5 million people have neurological and developmental disabilities (IDDs), such as Cerebral Palsy, Down Syndrome or autism spectrum disorders (ASDs)
UCP has been providing services for people with disabilities for more than 70 years, including many children and adults who do not have Cerebral Palsy.
