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!
"Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see the shadows. It's what sunflowers do." Helen Keller
UDSF families, friends, community leaders and business owners, we need you! In order for UDSF to fulfil its mission of supporting individuals with Down syndrome and their families, we need your help. Consistency is something that we want to strive for. Consistent quarterly activities, consistent teen and adult activities, consistent Mighty Step for Down Syndrome events, consistent educational programs, consistent volunteers, consistent fundraisers and donations. With your help and support we can achieve this goal of consistency. We invite you to attend our quarterly activities. Show up so we can grow up! (Just like a sunflower, upward is the direction we want to go so by showing up and as our numbers grow, we can assess the need and continue providing activities and programs for our members.) We invite you to attend an annual Mighty Steps for Down Syndrome Walk and EXTRAvaganza this year. Invite your friends and family to come too. Let them see how wonderful our Down syndrome community is and why it's important for us to gather and advocate for our children with Down syndrome. Volunteer! We always need help to make our events run effectively and smoothly. Your feedback is essential too! Let us know what UDSF can do for your family. Remind your friends and family when they're looking for a non profit to donate to, that we would love their monetary support. Ask your employer if they have a matching program where your personal donation can be matched. Host your own fundraiser where UDSF is the beneficiary. As far as supporting UDSF, the possibilities are endless. But one thing remains the same, we need you! We need each other and together we can make a difference!
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 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 within a few hours.
