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.
*Due to the coronavirus pandemic, UDSF will be offering video conferencing with one of our parent volunteers instead of in-person visits. In addition, care packages will be mailed to you instead of being hand-delivered.
New Parent Breakfast
New and expectant parents and grandparents are invited to attend a quarterly New Parent Breakfast where you can socialize with other parents of infants with Down syndrome (up to 24 months) and get some tips on early childhood development. Expectant parents, new parents, and grandparents are invited to attend these gatherings.
