Our History

Advancing Opportunities, Inc. traces its roots to United Cerebral Palsy Associations of New Jersey, Inc., an organization formed by a group of parent advocates in 1950. Its mission was to help each other cope with the daily challenges their families faced having a member with a disability. In 2001, the agency changed its name to Cerebral Palsy of New Jersey. In 2008, the agency changed its name again to reflect the fact that it provides supports to people with all types of disabilities and creates a wide array of possibilities.
