History

CPNJ was founded in 1953 by the parents of children with cerebral palsy who wanted better services for their loved ones. They operated from donated space in the basement of Orange Memorial Hospital. The organization has steadily grown over the years and today it is a $36 million dollar organization with more than 800 staff members at 19 program sites serving more than 1,500 infants, children and adults with disabilities.
