Review for Down Syndrome Network, Tempe, AZ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I recently relocated to Arizona and contacted this organization which provided me with resources and contact information of services. I would not have known this information or been able to find it on my own. I appreciate there involvement with me.

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

the people and resources that they led me to. They were perfect for what I needed. They also have kept me informed of issues that are important to my son and others.

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

want a lot more funding

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

they respond quickly and informatively to all questions asked. Also, the chat site keeps a network of parents and professionals in touch with each other so you don't feel alone or abandoned.

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

compassionate, informative, and there. I was most pleased in the quick turn around of answers to my questions as well as the resources that others can provide.

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

Develop a center, similar to the one in Illinois that deals with Down Syndrome. As my son ages, I see that this is a greater need than ever before.

Ways to make it better...

Could not have been better

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

funding for a center that we could go to for issues and care providers that directly effect and know how to care for the people with Down Syndrome.

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

Down Syndrome has been around a long time and with all of the publicity about children with Autism and its prevelance it seems that we are forgotten and not as politically worthwhile.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2009
