The mission of the Association is to be a resource and advocacy organization promoting public awareness and supporting lifelong opportunities for individuals with Down syndrome and their families.
The Down Syndrome Association of West Michigan (DSAWM) is a non-profit organization whose mission is to be a resource and advocacy organization, promoting public awareness and supporting lifelong opportunities for individuals with Down syndrome and their families.
The DSAWM serves twelve counties in West Michigan: Allegan, Barry, Ionia, Kalamazoo, Kent, Mecosta, Montcalm, Muskegon, Newaygo, Oceana, Ottawa and Van Buren.
Our membership is comprised of more than 427 individuals with Down syndrome, their families and their friends. We also service more than 400 community partners, i.e., medical professionals, educational professionals, therapists, disability organizations, etc.
Anyone who wishes to join the Association may become a member; however, only those living in the aforementioned counties receive full access to DSAWM programs and services. More than 30 counties in the state of Michigan (and one in Wyoming) are represented among our membership.
