UCP of DE’s Programs
The goal of United Cerebral Palsy of Delaware, Inc.

- In 2013 and 2014, UCP and the Brain Injury Association of Delaware (BIAD) are hosting “A Healthy Life Without Limits”, a Health Fair for children with special health care needs. Funding for the health fairs is provided by Family SHADE of the University of Delaware’s Center for Disabilities Studies. The goal of the fairs is to connect families with special health care needs with the information and resources they need to live a happy, healthy life without limits.
We believe that our programs underline what UCP values most – –
Life Without Limits For People With Disabilities.
