Founded in 1954, United Cerebral Palsy of Rhode Island, Inc. is a locally funded nonprofit agency serving individuals with cerebral palsy and other disabilities and their families. Our mission is to advance the independence, productivity and full citizenship of the people we serve. Despite their disabilities, the adults we support manage their own lives, live in their communities with our help and work or go to school whenever possible. They differ only by requiring physical, social, therapeutic, mechanical or electronic support. The children we support live with their families because UCP Rhode Island’s services relieve care giving requirements and financial strains that make raising a child with a disability so stressful to both the family and child. We currently service about 200 individuals in our adult supported living, children and family services and adult arts and education programs.
Our offices are located in Pawtucket and Johnston, Rhode Island with hours of operation of 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
