i moved to Seattle WA in the year 1989. at that time, UCP had a building on north 45th street that was 4 floors tall and covered half a city block! now, as far as i know, UCP doesn't even have a presence in Seattle. what's up with that? does anyone have info on what is the cause behind this decline?

i'm going to bump this post. does united cerebral palsey even exist as a real entity anymore? a search of the internet seems to indicate that the answer is "no" so why have it up on any website dedicated to CP?

Physiotherapy treatment is also used for cerebral palsy treatment in children. You want to get more information about cerebral palsy then need to visit Trishla Foundation website, here you get information about cerebral palsy, cerebral palsy diagnosis, therapy, and surgery treatment also know the types of cerebral palsy.

United Cerebral Palsy Land of Lincoln, a Springfield-based nonprofit that has served people with developmental disabilities since the late 1960s, was acquired Wednesday by another local nonprofit that serves the same clientele.

Sparc’s acquisition of UCP, reportedly in the works for six months, didn’t involve an exchange of money, according to Sparc.

The deal could mean changes in housing and other services for 34 clients in UCP group homes and 45 in vocational services, but officials from both groups said clients will be better served in the long run.

“It is both organizations’ hope that this alliance will allow us to be able to increase our impact while supporting more adults with developmental disabilities,” Sparc CEO Greg O’Connor said in a news release. “Together, we will be able to support more people, deliver best-in-class services, and significantly increase private support and fundraising.”

UCP board chairman Pete Cavanagh said in a phone interview the two organizations were guided by two boards “perceived to be competitors in the past that are like-minded and got together to pool our resources to best serve our clients.”

Jennifer Niebrugge, chief executive officer of UCP, said in the news release: “We’re very excited about this new path ahead. We anticipate an amicable, beneficial experience for the people we support.”

Cavanagh, a 4th District Illinois Appellate Court judge, wouldn’t elaborate on the factors that prompted UCP to approach Sparc about an acquisition.

UCP serves 34 people in group homes and 45 people in vocational programs; some of the group home residents may take part in vocational programs.
