Mission and Vision
Cerebral Palsy affects the lives of three out of every 1,000 children born.
Many parents struggle to help their children realize full, satisfying lives. Like their non-disabled peers, we want them to go to school, ride bicycles, get a career and become mothers and fathers. We want them to contribute to their communities.Our mission is to advance the quality of life for people with cerebral palsy. Fortunately, today the possibilities are endless, the knowledge and services are available and people with cerebral palsy and other disabilities succeed in ways never before imagined.
United Cerebral Palsy is dedicated to meeting the needs of children and adults with cerebral palsy so they can enjoy an increased quality of life. We also strive to increase the awareness of CP through education and advocacy efforts. As part of one of the nation’s largest health charities, United Cerebral Palsy affiliates are leaders in providing innovative programs and services to more than 176,000 children and adults with disabilities every day. Our volunteers are engaged ambassadors helping us fulfill our mission to advance the independence, productivity and full citizenship of people with disabilities. As one of the nation’s leading organizations serving and advocating for the more that 54 million Americans with disabilities, United Cerebral Palsy is an accredited organization known for a service-based, individual-focused approach. Our strength as part of a nationwide network grows out of a long history of service and unwavering commitment for more that 55 years to advancing the full citizenship of people with disabilities.
