To help create a life without limits for people with Disabilities
As a part of one of the nation’s largest health organizations, United Cerebral Palsy affiliates are leaders in providing innovative programs and services to more than 176,000 children and adults with disabilities every day. UCP volunteers are engaged ambassadors helping to fulfill the UCP mission to advance the independence, productivity and full citizenship of people with disabilities. UCP makes a difference not only in the lives of the children and adults it serves, but also in the communities as employers contributing to local economies.
Services and programs we provide include supportive home care, support broker, skills for life, information and referral, social and wellness groups. To learn more about each of these please check out the corresponding pages under the Programs tab.

United Cerebral Palsy of West Central Wisconsin has had a youth ambassador each year for the past 39+ years. This is something that makes our organization unique. Our youth ambassador represents UCP of WCW at fundraising events, especially our telethon which is one of the largest events we put on each year.
Our 2019 youth ambassador is Trevor Tompkins. He is our first youth ambassador without a diagnosis of Cerebral Palsy. Being that we serve people of all ages with varying abilities Trevor is a wonderful ambassador to spread that knowledge within the community. You can learn more about Trevor and his journey under About Us on the Youth Ambassador page.
We are always looking for volunteers for all of our events
