Statement of Purpose: The mission of United Cerebral Palsy of Greater Cincinnati is to advance the independence, productivity and full citizenship of people with cerebral palsy and other disabilities. Our vision is to live in a society where people with disabilities have the same opportunities to live, learn, work and play as do people without disabilities.
Geographic Area and Population Served: Despite our name, almost 60% of those served by United Cerebral Palsy of Greater Cincinnati (UCP) have a primary disability other than cerebral palsy, including traumatic brain or spinal cord injury, multiple sclerosis, stroke, and other developmental and acquired disabilities. UCP provides direct, personal services to more than 450 teens and adults with disabilities each year. Training and technical assistance are provided to several hundred individuals who interact with people with disabilities in community settings. UCP assists individuals and families throughout the Greater Cincinnati area, including Hamilton, Clermont, Butler, Brown, Adams and Warren counties in Ohio; Boone, Campbell and Kenton counties in Northern Kentucky; and Dearborn County in Southeast Indiana. However, we do not limit our services by county lines.
Organizational Budget and Support: UCP operates on an annual budget of approximately $2.5 million. On average, more than 85% of our budget directly supports UCP services and programs in our community each year, which is one of the highest ratios of health service based non-profits. UCP’s budget is supported by fee reimbursements, the United Way, and our own fundraising efforts. We must generate nearly 20 % of our budget through our own fundraising, including grants, direct fundraising and special events. You are assured in knowing your financial support of our unique programs and services is effectively used to its fullest capacity.
Community Needs and UCP Response: According to the U.S. Census, an estimated 54 million americans have disabilities with the number of disability cases on the rise. 10 percent of people 18 to 64 have disabilities. Given these trends, UCP supports our community’s growing needs now more than ever before. With a more than 60 year history, UCP is a community leader in helping people with disabilities and their loved ones achieve a life without limits. UCP also plays an active role in educating the public about people with disabilities and the importance of community integration. UCP focuses on proven training and services to help individuals and families achieve increased levels of independence and participation throughout the community.
