About UCP of Greater Chicago
Life without limits for people with disabilities
UCP helps people with physical and cognitive disabilities and the economically disadvantaged.
Founded in 1951, United Cerebral Palsy Association of Greater Chicago first opened its doors to address the needs of children and adults with cerebral palsy. We’ve been opening doors ever since. We help a child with cerebral palsy use technology that lets her speak for the first time. We help a man unable to use his hands or arms learn to do his own laundry and prepare his own meals. We help a woman in a wheelchair roll down her new ramp and back into the community.
To advance the independence of people with disabilities, enrich their lives, provide support to their families and advocate for their inclusion in every facet of community life — that’s the mission of United Cerebral Palsy of Greater Chicago.
