HELP GROW THE DSCNWA
We are trying to raise more money to offer more programs to our families in the NWA area blessed by Down syndrome. The DSCNWA needs additional quality educational events, sibling conferences, training for local hospitals on delivering diagnoses, etc..
We have new age-specific programs: New Parent Support Mixers (0-6yrs), PALS (7-11yrs), STARS (12-17), CLUB 3-21 (18yrs+)….BUT WE NEED YOUR HELP!! Your support and action will help us get to the next level and continue supporting individuals with Down syndrome throughout their lifespan.
About Down Syndrome Connection of NWA
The Down Syndrome Connection of Northwest Arkansas has been supporting families in Northwest Arkansas, since 2002.
What started as a group of parents supporting each other has turned into a professional, working organization of parents, friends, business leaders, volunteers, educators, therapists and others, working to provide a connection in our community. We hope you will join us in our continued growth.
Our mission is to facilitate inclusion and respect for individuals with Down syndrome within the Northwest Arkansas Community, ensuring that they have access to the support and the resources necessary to reach their full potential at all stages of life.
Our vision is a Northwest Arkansas Community in which individuals with Down syndrome are able to participate in a meaningful way at work and at play, are able to achieve their aspirations, and are welcomed as valued community members.
