The McMains Children's Developmental Center is an affiliate of United Cerebral Palsy and a Community Impact Program of Capital Area United Way.


United Cerebral Palsy works closely with the Center to improve the quality of life for children with disabilities. In the 1940s, a group of parents came together to form UCP after acknowledging the lack of resources available for children with cerebral palsy. Their ultimate goal was to provide children with disabilities and their families with the tools needed to lead a full, happy life. United Cerebral Palsy has relentlessly advocated for individuals with disabilities and their families, as they continue to impact our community through home ownership, inclusive education, competitive employment, and health care reform.



United Way works to achieve a community where every person is encouraged to reach their fullest potential. In addition to fundraising, United Way gives a voice to the people who are not being heard. United Way serves ten parishes in Louisiana to improve education, income stability, health, and basic needs of every person. The efforts of United Way change thousands of lives by pushing for the betterment of humankind.
