The Down Syndrome Information Alliance provides support and resources to empower individuals with Down syndrome, their families, and our community. We envision a community where people with Down syndrome are empowered, respected as individuals, and accepted as valued participants in neighborhood schools, community activities, and the business world.
Without funding from the Step Up Walk, the Down Syndrome Information Alliance cannot provide the resources, support and programs that we do.
