Down Syndrome Network has helped educate myself and my family to improve the quality of my daughter's future! Down Syndrome Network is a wonderful place to meet other families just like ours. It's nice to share our experiences and to know we're not alone.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my life and how I deal with my daughter one on one every day! Thank you for the education seminars!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

keep up the good job!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

its very nonjudgmental. We all love someone with DS that's why we're here!

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

very helpful and considerate! Nice to meet people with a smile!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

open a down syndrome clinic which could support our kiddos!

Ways to make it better...

I could attend more events.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

financial; money is always hard to keep a non-profit alive!

One thing I'd also say is that...

THANK YOU!
