Mission Statement

The SBDSA mission is to: • Promote inclusion in education and work life for individuals with Down syndrome • Become a resource for individuals and families in the South Bay regarding Down syndrome. • Support the independence and integrity of individuals with Down syndrome. • Facilitate the growth and development of individuals with Down syndrome by promoting activities that speak to the challenges faced by individuals with Down syndrome and their families • Engage the community at large to heighten local awareness and understanding of the potential and capabilities of individuals with Down syndrome • Provide a bridge to events and services for the Down syndrome community regionally, nationally and internationally.

Description

South Bay Down Syndrome Association ("SBDSA") came together in 2007 based on a geographic need for families in the South Bay to have easy access to fellowship and information that could impact the well-being of families and individuals with Down syndrome, or Trisomy 21.

Since then, we have grown into a strong social network of parents dedicated to pursuing the interests of their children and young adults with Down syndrome, and a resource of collective experience that can assist parents as they learn about and navigate the world of Special Needs in Southern California.

SBDSA continues to grow and we invite you to join us and discover the rich community of parents, children and young adults that are defining the new face of Down syndrome in the South Bay.
