The mission of UCP of San Diego County is to advance the independence, productivity and full citizenship of people affected by cerebral palsy and other disabilities. By making solid steps, UCP can build a better community for all in the process.


Imagine a world, filled with dreams, missionchoice and freedom and the promise of a community where each person belongs and contributes in a world with No Limits! That’s the world UCP envisions and works toward each and every day especially here in San Diego County.

Whether assisting someone in finding their first job, helping a child express him or herself through technology, connecting parents and individuals to support one another, or breaking down architectural and attitudinal barriers so all people can fully participate in our community, UCP helps create a world where dreams guide – lives are fulfilled and anything is possible.

We invite you to join us in this pursuit of a better community and invest in the power of human potential.
