Financial assistance for assistive technology and medical devices for people with disabilities in CT makes a difference in their daily lives.

The Elsie S. Bellows Fund was established in 1995 to provide assistive technology equipment to individuals with disabilities. The earnings from this fund are allocated on an annual basis by United Cerebral Palsy to UCP of Eastern CT and other state-wide affiliates.

Assistive technology plays a major role to help people with disabilities in CT lead more independent and fulfilling lives. The Elsie S. Bellows Fund provides funds to UCP of Eastern CT and other affiliates to purchase equipment.

At UCP we believe everyone should have access to solutions to help people with disabilities lead more independent and fulfilling lives. We are here for you when you need us.
