Githens Center (Burlington County Cerebral Palsy Association) was established in 1951 under the leadership of Helen Githens, a parent from Vincentown, and Dr. E. Vernon Davis, an orthopedist. The group was originally organized to improve the welfare of individuals with cerebral palsy. In May 1951, the first Diagnostic Clinic was held with six individuals being screened. In September 1951, physical therapy was offered one half day per week. Through the untiring efforts of the founders, and many others including Virginia Alwine and Kate G. York, the current executive director, Githens Center has developed into its present status of excellence offering numerous programs for individuals with disabilities and their families.
