For more than 60 years, United Cerebral Palsy of Greater New Orleans has assisted and supported the disabled community of Southeast Louisiana.
Though Cerebral Palsy is the most common physical disability in children, we realized early in our history that our mission must embrace all developmental disabilities.
Today, more than 65% of people served by UCP Greater New Orleans have disabilities OTHER than Cerebral Palsy. From disabilities evidenced from birth to traumatic brain injury, we’re committed to creating a life without limits for people with a spectrum of disabilities.
Through the provision of direct services and supportive assistance, UCP Greater New Orleans continues to meet its mission of advancing the independence, productivity and full citizenship for people with disabilities.
We work as advocates for the disability community, broadening awareness and as an information and referral network that connects people to resources. The needs are great. Some 18 percent of the U.S. population has some level of disability. Those with severe disabilities comprise 12 percent of our population.
As a small nonprofit with our own limited financial resources, we hope to do even more for the disabled of Southeast Louisiana.
