HOPE

The Utah Down Syndrome Foundation's mission is providing hope to individuals, their families, and the community through support, education, activities, outreach, and advocacy.

 


Me and You! Let's Navigate Twenty Twenty Two!


The Utah Down Syndrome Foundation's mission is providing hope to individuals, their families, and the community through support, education, activities, outreach, and advocacy. The success of UDSF comes from the "support" of its leaders, staff, board, volunteers, families, friends, and community.

We look forward to navigating 2022 with you! 


The Best Is Yet To Come

We are off to a great start in 2022 and it's only the beginning! So far we have held Down to Learn workshops, celebrated World Down Syndrome Day across the state, held moms' lunches and dinners and a financial workshop. We have distributed our "hot off the press" New and Expectant Parent Resource Guides to medical providers and hospitals. We've delivered 30 Newborn Care Baskets to new and expectant parents. We've hosted Young Adult and Teen 21 activities. We held a few Spring celebrations in April including egg hunts. In May we have a ballet under the stars with Mountain West Ballet's production of Coppelia held at the Sandy Amphitheater. We also have our New Family Breakfast coming up in May. The best part about our success so far is you! We couldn't do it without the help from our staff, community leaders, volunteers, families, and donors. You are the ones who are making it all happen and we want to thank you for your support. We have so much to look forward to. The Cooper Bowden Memorial Golf Tournament is scheduled in September at the River Oaks Golf Course in Sandy. Our Mighty Steps For Down Syndrome walks will be held in the fall. We have also found our Birthday Club sponsor for 2022. Chick-fil-A will provide a sweet treat to wish our members a happy birthday. With many, many more events, activities, teen and young adult gatherings, and workshops ahead we are sure to have a year filled with HOPE as we navigate this journey called Down syndrome together! Please visit our calendar of events often for updates. The best is yet to come!!
