For 60 years UCP of Arkansas has worked to ensure that individuals with disabilities can live a life without limits!


United Cerebral Palsy of Arkansas’ mission is to advance the independence, productivity and full citizenship of people with disabilities.

UCP of Arkansas began in 1957 when a group of five families sought services for their children with cerebral palsy. The organization has since grown into one of the largest and most comprehensive non-profit agencies in the state.

UCP works to educate, advocate and provide support services to ensure a life without limits for individuals with a spectrum of disabilities, as 65% of the people we serve have a disability other than cerebral palsy. Services include day habilitation, job training, educational programs and case management for over 500 adults and children.
