CP Nassau Mission
We provide the opportunity for children and adults with disabilities to move forward one step at a time throughout their life to reach their highest level of independence.
The Cerebral Palsy Association of Nassau County has been assisting individuals with disabilities since 1948. Today, close to 1,500 children and adults with developmental disabilities benefit from the quality programs and services offered that help all move forward to reach independence and their best life. Programs include a school for children ages 2 – 21, an Adult Day Program, Residential Programs, and a state-of-the-art Medical and Primary Care Clinic.
The Agency headquarters is located on a beautiful 15-acre campus that includes a fully- adapted recreation area and playground known as Theresa’s Fun Place. Great things happen here on a daily basis as staff works with program participants to make a positive difference in their lives.
COVID has not gone away and continues to be a challenge in our world. Things have improved here at CP Nassau and children and adults are returning to school here and to programs. We have scheduled some of our fundraising events too and are so happy to welcome our friends in the community back. CP Nassau is so grateful for the caring, the interest and support that all have shown towards us during these difficult years! We thank all of you who are supporting the CP Nassau 5K Walk, Run, Roll, Stroll and look forward to moving forward with you!
Funds raised through the 5K will benefit health and wellness efforts at the Agency as well as the MOVE (Mobility Opportunities via Education) for children and adult participants.
The event features a pre-race warm-up & stretch, a DJ, a custom CP Nassau T-shirt and a medal for all who raise the required funds. You will have an amazing time with friends, family, neighbors, participants, and co-workers who care about the Cerebral Palsy Association of Nassau County!

CP Nassau is grateful to the following sponsors for their generosity and support
In 1941, requiring assistance with her 18-month old son who had been recently diagnosed with cerebral palsy, Anita Baldwin did not know where to turn. Although the condition is not hereditary, contagious, progressive, nor a primary cause of death, with no facilities in close proximity, Mrs. Baldwin’s isolation, and frustration motivated her to seek out others in similar circumstances, eventually banding together to establish a small outpatient clinic that in 1948 became the United Cerebral Palsy Association of Nassau County, Inc. (ucpn)
A comprehensive treatment and rehabilitation center for people with cerebral palsy was built in 1952, thanks to the partnership forged between generous contributors and volunteers who donated construction services. More than seven decades later the Agency is still headquartered on a 14-acre campus in Roosevelt, Long Island, New York, with satellite facilities throughout Nassau County. The Agency is part of both statewide and local support networks that fulfill a similar mission for individuals and their families with disabilities. This includes the CP State Association of New York, which coordinates the efforts of 24 Cerebral Palsy affiliates throughout the State.
