New & Expectant Parent Outreach

Outreach. Connection. Hope.

Newborn Care Package

For new and expectant parents, the Utah Down syndrome Foundation (UDSF) provides care packages filled with information, both educational and inspirational. These packages are designed to welcome new families into our community and to help them develop a positive outlook for the future of their child with Down syndrome.  They are called "care packages" because they are hand-delivered with care by a parent volunteer who has a child with Down syndrome. This parent volunteer can answer your questions and tell you from a real-life point of view what you can look forward to as you raise your new baby.

New & Expectant Parent Breakfast
