What We Do
United Cerebral Palsy (UCP) of Nebraska provides education, advocacy, grants and social programs to individuals and their families living in Nebraska with cerebral palsy and other disabilities.
Client Assistance Grants:
Offers limited grants to qualified families and individuals with disabilities to promote independence and encourage empowerment. This grant program helps with things such as purchasing adaptive equipment, removing barriers in the home, enhancement of mobility and providing scholarships for special programs like summer camp, sports programs and training.
Go Baby Go:
Provides modified, ride-on-cars for free to young children, approximately 9 months to 6 years with special needs who experience limited mobility. An initiative started at the University of Delaware by Cole Galloway to provide opportunities for early independent movement, socialization, and overall skill development for children with mobility limitations.
Family Focus is a series of events throughout the year designed to bring families facing similar challenges together and provide the opportunity to draw strength and knowledge, as well as relax and socialize.
Information and Referral:
Information and referral is available for individuals with disabilities, their family, professionals and advocates throughout Nebraska.
Tech Tools, A Developmental Technology Library:
Our lending libraries are located statewide and offer a wide variety of adaptive technology and communication devices for all ages and abilities. The items are available for "check out" at no cost for up to four weeks. The libraries are open to families, professionals and other care providers to increase independence at home, school, work or in the community.
