Down Syndrome Network
May 15, 2009

When I joined up with Down Syndrome Network I was in need of opportunities to socialize as a family and feel acceptance. I craved education so I could feel confident in myself as a mom of a child with a disability who had abilities. I also desired a place where I could give back by share my talents. A few years later I am still socializing, gaining confidence and giving back as my talents develop. I greatly appreciate what Down Syndrome Network has provided as our family travels the wonderful journey of Down syndrome.

The Great!

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

the lives of my family.

Ways to make it better...

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

work just as hard to improve the lives of individuals with Down syndrome

More feedback

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

the confidence I received to raise a child with a disability.

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

go getters and dedicated to their cause

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

reach its goals.

Ways to make it better...

I had gotten involved earlier

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

people who are prejudice of individuals with disabilities and funding to reach the larger goals.

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

having a child with Down syndrome is a big time opportunity for happiness and growth.
