United Cerebral Palsy of Greater Chicago (UCP) works to advance the independence of people with physical and cognitive disabilities, enrich their lives, provide support to their families and advocate for their inclusion in every facet of life. Founded in 1951, UCP 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. UCP is a 501c3 nonprofit organization. Donations are tax-exempt to the extent allowed by law.
