About Us

Since 1949, Cerebral Palsy of Westchester has been the leading non-profit organization in Westchester and Fairfield County, providing essential educational services, direct services, vocational training, recreation, rehabilitation and advocacy to children and adults with cerebral palsy and other disabilities.

Cerebral Palsy of Westchester was founded by a dedicated network of volunteers, helping disabled children access medical treatments and services that were just becoming available in area hospitals. One volunteer, Martie Osterer, recognized the need for a strong organization with structure and financial stability,…

Mission & Vision

We believe and advocate that….
All children and adults with disabilities have a fundamental right to public education that prepares them to function as independently as possible. Each child with a disability is entitled to the opportunity to live and grow within their family, and that advocacy and service must be truly family-centered, rather than focused exclusively on the individual. People with disabilities have the right, desire and ability to shape their own destinies…

Dear Friends,

Despite his many challenges, 11-year-old James embraces every opportunity to learn and grow. Since starting school at CP/Westchester three years ago, James has learned to read, write sentences, add, and subtract. Being in a wheelchair hasn’t stopped him from becoming a basketball MVP, earning badges as a Boy Scout, and acting as a caring friend to his class- mates. To quote his teacher: He’s amazing!

James’s mom, who struggles to raise four children on her own, notes that CP/W has become part of her family. “They treat my son as if he’s their own.” At CP/W our mission is to meet the complex needs of children and adults in our community with disabilities. Our rewards are the miracles we witness every day. A boy takes his first steps on a walker. A little girl with autism speaks her first words. A proud young adult takes the bus to work.

Since our founding in 1949, our Center has enabled thousands of people with special needs to reach their potential and realize their dreams. We could not do this without the kindness and generosity of friends like you.

Thanks to you, we have started construction on a new, fully accessible playground for the many children we serve. This facility will offer fun, physical learning, and camaraderie to youngsters whose lives are too often defined by what they cannot do.

In this season of thanksgiving and reflection, we are so grateful for your support.
