Today, UCP of Central Maryland is a large, dynamic agency serving thousands of children and adults.

These rights included education, employment, housing and the right to live a full life in the community. These dedicated individuals formed United Cerebral Palsy, an organization committed to advancing the independence of people with cerebral palsy and other disabilities. UCP has a rich history of meeting the needs of individuals with disabilities.
