UCP of Orange County (UCP-OC) is Orange County’s only nonprofit organization delivering comprehensive services and support for children with disabilities and their families. Founded in 1953, UCP-OC was originally established to assist individuals of all ages affected by cerebral palsy. To meet a growing demand for children with a variety of disabilities, the organization broadened their programs and range of disabilities to include autism, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome and other developmental delays. Caregivers, specialists and therapists actively work with children and families through six comprehensive programs to improve their quality of life providing support and resources families need to meet the demands of everyday life and advocate for their child.
