CP of NYS was founded in 1946 by parents of children with cerebral palsy seeking services who envisioned the organization to be their advocate. Today it is a broad-based, multi-service organization with 24 Affiliates and 18,000 employees providing support, services and programs for 100,000 individuals with cerebral palsy and developmental disabilities and their families. Through our Metropolitan Services, CP of NYS offers support and services for people with an array of physical and/or developmental disabilities in all five Boroughs of New York City.
