About UCP DC & NVA


United Cerebral Palsy of Washington DC & Northern VA. (UCP) is a 501©(3) non-profit organization that offers an array of day supports and services for people with intellectual disabilities, physical disabilities and complex medical profiles, in the Washington metropolitan area.

From grassroots beginnings, United Cerebral Palsy was born as a national organization in 1949. In 1950, a small group of dedicated citizens of the District of Columbia founded the Cerebral Palsy Association of Washington D.C. with a mission to educate citizens of the District about the causes and treatment of Cerebral Palsy while promoting the creation of facilities that were better equipped to diagnose and treat sufferers of the condition. The Cerebral Palsy Association of Washington, D.C. later joined the national affiliate network and changed its name to United Cerebral Palsy of Washington D.C., Incorporated. In 1987, United Cerebral Palsy of Washington D.C. Inc. underwent another reformation after receiving a certificate of merger and becoming United Cerebral Palsy of Washington D.C. and Northern Virginia, Inc.
