Our change in name does not mean we will change the support we provide to children and adults with disabilities -just a refreshed look with a focus on Philadelphia and growth.

Independence Grows Here

After 70 years of serving its community as United Cerebral Palsy of Philadelphia (UCP), the organization announces it will officially change its name to Blossom Philadelphia, effective March 1, 2017.

“Last year, we launched a strategic planning project to take the pulse of how our name and logo have stood the test of time and to frame up a five year plan that would allow us to better serve the adults and children with disabilities in the Philadelphia area. We looked to a team of clients, volunteer board members, staff, parents, donors and families to help us understand not just our history, but what we wanted for our future,” said Paula Czyzewski, Chief Executive Officer, Blossom Philadelphia.

In recognition of our progress and support along the journey, we are pleased to present our new name, Blossom Philadelphia and tagline, Independence Grows Here. This truly captures our mission: to help people with disabilities create the life they want to live.
