AUCP began in 1955 as a grassroots effort by a group of concerned parents wanting to find support for family members age 18 – 59 with both physical and intellectual disabilities. The organization started out in a small church basement and eventually grew to into its current office building located in Johnstown, PA.
From mid-1950’s to the early 2000’s, AUCP operated group homes that served up to 30 disabled individuals. In 2007, the organization expanded its services to become a Service Coordination Agency, which offered in-home care services in 22 Pennsylvania counties.
