UWS was founded in 1990 as a community-based parent support program to serve
culturally and linguistically diverse (CLD) families who have children, youth/ young adults with disabilities in the
Greenpoint /Williamsburg communities of Brooklyn, NY.


UWS now serves families throughout Brooklyn, the Bronx, Queens, and Harlem (Manhattan).  Directed and staffed by parents who reside in the target communities and have a child with a disability or are individuals/parents with disabilities, UWS provides information and support to families in these underserved communities as they encounter disability-related issues.

We believe all women can embrace who they are,
can define their future, and can change the world.

Our Mission

 The mission of United We Stand is to empower our communities’ diverse families and youth to advocate for themselves and their
loved ones through providing and facilitating access to the help, resources, and services they need.


Our Vision

Is that children and youth with the greatest needs in our target communities thrive through the
advocacy and support of the families and professionals who care about them.
