Community Groups

UDSF strives to develop programs that will "Love.Lift. Launch." individuals with Down syndrome and their families.  UDSF's Community Groups is one such program that helps to achieve this goal.  The UDSF provides administrative support and funding to various Community Groups throughout the state of Utah. Community Groups are organized by location and offer a variety of both educational and social opportunities for families and individuals with Down syndrome. Some examples of activities include summer swim parties, holiday get-togethers, Mighty Steps for Down Syndrome walks, etc.

All Community Groups are under the direction of a Community Group Leader who is a UDSF volunteer.  These leaders are always looking for individuals and families who would like to help organize activities and educational events.  If you would like to volunteer or if you have any questions about UDSF events in your community, please contact your community group leader.  In addition to UDSF's main facebook page, Utah Down Syndrome Foundation, some of the community groups have a Facebook page specifically for their own community.  All community events are posted on UDSF's calendar below.
