To provide support, education, and advocacy for people with Down syndrome, their families and communities.
The Down Syndrome Association of Northeast Ohio is the primary resource for families and communities regarding Down syndrome, where all people are accepted, included and empowered. The Down Syndrome Association of Northeast Ohio envisions a community where people with Down syndrome have limitless opportunities and the ability to pursue their dreams.
In the early 1980’s, a handful of parents whose children had Down syndrome began to meet informally over coffee for socialization and support. More than thirty years later, with the help of many supporters, their vision and hard work has taken The Down Syndrome Association of Northeast Ohio from a grassroots parent movement to a staffed nonprofit organization joining over 1000 families throughout Northeast Ohio.
