While there has long been a tight-knit group of families in Snohomish County’s Down syndrome community, in 2011 a group of moms decided it was time that all families in our area were able to make those connections. The Down Syndrome Association of Snohomish County was formed.
We’ve begun our support offerings with social events, a new parent outreach program, and in 2012, a birth-to-3 playgroup.
Our group is especially pleased that the Down Syndrome Community, based in King County, has generously offered us the option to affiliate with their organization, along with resources to get this project off the ground. We look forward to collaborating with them on regional events in the future.
The beginning of a new group is exciting, and we are ready for your new ideas and suggestions. We have a unique opportunity to create an organization that is designed around the resources our Snohomish County families need. If you have input or ideas, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
