"United Cerebral Palsy (UCP) of Oregon and SW Washington is a non-profit based in Portland, Oregon. We’ve been advancing the independence, productivity and full citizenship of people with disabilities since 1955. Today, we provide support for over 260 adults with cerebral palsy and other developmental disabilities. We also support over 800 families of children who have cerebral palsy and related disabilities. To adults we offer home, community connection and job supports.  For families, we assist in the navigation of a sometimes overwhelming new path, offering opportunities for connection with other families and the hope that the future will be okay. At UCP, we envision a community that values the same important ideas that we do:
Full Inclusion: Individuals, regardless of the severity of their disability, are included in every aspect of life including home, school, workforce, and community.
Empowerment: People with disabilities, and families of children with disabilities, have a right to make decisions about things that affect their lives.  We help them identify their options and utilize the same means as anyone else in the community to achieve their choices.
Family Solidarity: Families having a member with disabilities are supported so they may stay together and flourish.
Diversity: All persons are valued and respected for their individual differences.
Teamwork: It takes teamwork to produce positive results. The many people who contribute to our mission are appreciated, encouraged, and supported."
