First Call of Hope

Receiving a Down syndrome diagnosis can be overwhelming. If you need to speak with someone immediately, someone who can relate and offer support, please call. Our number here at the Utah Down Syndrome Foundation is 801-446-1994. We are just one call away and your first call of hope. Leave a message and one of our trained, new parent mentors will call you. 

21K Gold

Pure gold is notated as 24K. This is the highest karat level for gold meaning it is 100% pure gold. Precious, valuable, special, bright, brilliant, a treasure, favorable, lucky are words that describe gold. All of these words also describe individuals with Down syndrome. That extra 21st chromosome they all posses make them 21K gold which is close enough to being 100% pure. Most will agree that Down syndrome is 100% golden. 21K pure gold! 21K pure magic! (It's no coincidence that one of the colors that represents DS is gold.)



  • Improve your community by joining our cause. You'd be surprised at what a huge difference a little bit of your time can make.
