Overview & Welcome Center

Overview

UCP of Western Massachusetts — an affiliate of United Cerebral Palsy Association — was established in 1961. UCP of Western Massachusetts offers service navigation, direct programming, assistive technology and advocacy for any individual, regardless of disability, to pursue a fulfilling, self-determined, high-quality community life — a life without limits.

Mission

UCP’s mission is to advance the independence, productivity and full community participation of children and adults with all physical and developmental disabilities.

Welcome Center

To become a member of UCP, an individual must meet the guidelines established in our welcome center. Our members are entitled to be assessed for formal advocacy and assistive technology services, receive monthly and/or quarterly event flyers and newsletters, and are informed of all UCP-sponsored activities. Members must have a documented physical or developmental disability.
