On January 1, 2014, Stepping Stones and United Cerebral Palsy of Greater Cincinnati (UCP) combined services and facilities to become a single agency.
The combined agency, called Stepping Stones, serves children, teens and adults with an array of developmental disabilities including autism, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, intellectual disabilities, seizure disorders, and other physical and behavioral disabilities.
“This combination represents a promising new chapter in the continued evolution of United Cerebral Palsy of Greater Cincinnati,” said UCP board president Tom Williams. “We are confident that, by working together, we can expand programs and enhance operating efficiency to better serve the community.”
Stepping Stones Board President John McIlwraith said the merger is a natural step. “The two agencies have virtually the same mission, similar programs and serve the same needs. Some clients attend programs at both agencies,” said McIlwraith.
“The merger allows us to better leverage the agencies’ resources to offer exceptional programs to meet the growing needs of individuals with disabilities in Greater Cincinnati.”
Stepping Stones continues to be part of the worldwide United Cerebral Palsy affiliate network.
