In 1951, United Cerebral Palsy of Greater Chicago opened its doors to serve children and adults with cerebral palsy. We’ve been opening doors ever since. Today we reach people with all kinds of physical and developmental disabilities, meeting their needs at every stage of life.
Generous supporters paved the way for our early growth. In 1985, Betty Levinson donated a building to house our adult programs. Since then, contributions by the Rubloff family and others have funded facilities in three suburbs.
In 1992, we launched Infinitec, which now helps people in four states achieve their infinite potential through assistive technology. Ten years later, we added Ramp Up, making homes accessible to everyone who lives there and connecting them with their communities.
2013 marked a major milestone as UCP of Greater Chicago joined forces with Seguin Services. The merger opened the way to stronger programs, more expansive services and a better future for people with disabilities.
