Mission Statement

To provide support for families with members who have Down syndrome and to raise awareness and acceptance of Down syndrome.

Description

We provide information to new parents, meetings for information and support for families of members with Down syndrome, and social activities throughout the year. We work in the community, often in conjunction with national or international campaigns, on issues that affect people with Down syndrome. For example, we are active in the Spread the Word campaign to eliminate the use of the word 'retard' as an insult. Our largest activity of the year is the annual Buddy Walk, a day celebrating people with Down syndrome and raising awareness and funds.
