CP CARES PROGRAM

CP Cares Program Logo white.png

The CP Cares Program assists individuals with disabilities with supports for daily living to improve quality of every day life.  We are pleased to announce that we now have two funding streams; The Funding Request Program & The Tech Fund Program.  

The Funding Request Program assists Albertans with cerebral palsy with supports for daily living such as adaptive equipment, programs, therapies, treatments and educational courses.  

The Tech Fund Program assists Albertans with disabilities and provides support for electronics and adapted devices needed to improve quality of everyday life.

Additionally, the Care Packages Program is designed to improve food and basic need insecurity for people in the disability community that has become more prevalent during these difficult times.  CP Care Packages are designed to assist with one-time supports for our clients in need.  These packages may contain items most needed such as food vouchers or basic essential care & hygiene items for children and adults. 

The CP Cares Program is funded entirely through the CPAA’s own fundraising efforts, the UCP's Bellows fund and donations from generous members of our community.  Questions or Care Packages request? Please contact our Funding Request Department by clicking here.
