Founded by parents of a child diagnosed with Down syndrome
Like many of you, we had no idea what to expect when our child was diagnosed with Down syndrome after birth. Though, we have learned quite a bit. Most importantly we learned that we've been given a gift. While some aspects of raising a child with Down Syndrome are different than raising a typically developing child, many aspects are the same. We've been to countless doctors and therapists and we have done a good bit of research. A primary goal of this organization is to support parents of children with Down syndrome.
Inclusion, value & acceptance
That is our mission. We want to play an active roll in our community to make children and adults with Down syndrome feel included, valued and accepted in our society. Though our events and projects we hope to bring people together. We want our community to see that individuals with Down syndrome are more alike us than different, and that they are active and involved members of our society.
