Creating Everyday Miracles for People With Disabilities
At United Cerebral Palsy of Central Arizona (UCP), our name does not tell our entire story. We serve people with cerebral palsy, but we also have compassionate experts who have experience helping children and adults with a wide array of disabilities. Though the scope of our work has changed over the years, our vision remains the same, to help people with disabilities reach their full potential and improve their quality of life and their families. Each unique program at UCP provides the highest quality of care in all stages of life.
Since 1952, we have served as one of the oldest private, non-profit health and human service organizations in Arizona. Every year we impact the life of nearly 3,000 people with disabilities in the community. Our work is reflected by the improved life experiences of each person we touch, presently and for generations to come. Our efforts are guided by the belief that each person has potential gifts and talents to be unlocked. We invite you to contact us if your loved one is experiencing a disability.
