Mission Statement

Devenio, inc. inspires community building through partnerships that provide lifelong opportunities for people with Down syndrome and other developmental disabilities. We create and facilitate collaborative projects, programs and events directed at education, awareness and increasing availability of experiences. By leveraging resources and working together, we aim to benefit the Down syndrome community as well as the greater communities in which we live.

Our projects include the Race4Respect, a 5K & 1K Kids Dash in Washington, DC. Join us to run the most coveted 5K course in the DC metro area. The Race4Respect is a collaborative project led by devenio, inc. with the eight Down syndrome affiliate groups from Baltimore, MD to Richmond, VA. www.race4respect.com We also have a soccer program for children with special needs ages 5-16 years old. Future projects include additional races across the country as well as a conference for siblings of those with a developmental disability.

Description

Devenio is a Latin word meaning "to come to, to arrive at, to reach". What better way to describe what we do? Located in the DC Metro area, devenio, inc. works with local and national disability groups to connect to their communities and inspire each other. We work with these groups to reach the full potential both for the organization, its members and its community.
