READ & INITIAL TO AGREE
CP Nassau MissionWe 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.
The COVID-19 Pandemic made 2020 extremely challenging for all. At the Cerebral Palsy Association of Nassau County, we faced many difficulties. We say proudly that “heroes work here” because thanks to the dedication, skill, and selflessness of so many staff members, the individuals with disabilities who live in the homes we run have been kept safe and well cared for. Teachers, therapists and others have worked hard and innovatively to maintain long-distance learning and offer therapies via telehealth for the children and adults with developmental disabilities we serve.
Our hearts are broken at the loss of some of the people we serve and co-workers as a result of the virus. We will never forget them and the difference they made in our world.
Funds from 2021 CP Nassau 5K event will go towards health and wellness efforts to benefit the staff and the children and adults who participate in programs at CP Nassau. All of them played a hero’s role in getting through the challenges together!
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.
