Goals

The UDSF has goals to build a foundation which will meet the demands of the future.  We would like every baby, child, student, and adult with Down syndrome to have access to support and services which would help each one reach his or her individual potential.  

Goals include:

  • Increasing public awareness and education in our communities through outreach to pediatricians and family doctors.
  • Working with the media to provide a more accurate representation of individuals with Down syndrome and their families.
  • Provide materials to adult siblings of individuals with Down syndrome to help in the planning for care after the parents have passed away.
  • Increasing social opportunities and support services for teens and adults with Down syndrome.
  • Training volunteers to represent and promote “best practice” programs in meeting the needs of all individuals with Down syndrome and their families whether in early intervention programs, schools, colleges, employment, social settings, etc., or through legislative advocacy.   

Making a donation in any amount will help us achieve these goals.
