Please Consider a Year-End Donation to DSI...

Do you care about people with Down syndrome? We do too! Just like you, we believe each person with Down syndrome should enjoy a happy, healthy and productive daily life. Can we count on you to help us this season?

With your continued support, in the next 1,000 days, Down Syndrome Indiana plans to accomplish the following on behalf of individuals with Down syndrome:
Expand The Learning Program™, that so many of our families have been very excited about, so that we can offer additional levels in Indy and launch this valuable program in Lafayette as well; 
Reach an additional 500 parents;
Bring the iCan Bike program to our Terre Haute families…

We still need to raise $14,000 to make our year end goal for 2017. Please make a donation today to help us reach this goal.  Click here to donate.

We have a big vision for people with Down syndrome… Down Syndrome Indiana wants everyone touched by Down syndrome to help us create a better future and a stronger community around people with Down syndrome. We are going to need the support of parents, individuals with Down syndrome themselves, grandparents, medical professionals, service providers, educators and volunteers to make it happen. Are you willing to lend your support? 

Because of you and people just like you, Down Syndrome Indiana has passed many milestones so far in 2017:

·         Served 1,753 parents and 837 individuals with Down syndrome;
·         Distributed 181 New Parent Packets;
·         We gave $13,000 in scholarships and financial aid;
·         7,000 people attended DSI events
·         3,368 hours were donated by 96 volunteers;
·         1,568 have been served through awareness presentations (over 200 more than last year!);
·         10,000 people visited our website for information and resources;
·         In 2017 so far, we have impacted over 17,000 people.

In addition, we launched The Learning Program™, Buddy Walk® Terre Haute and an Education Advisory Committee. We created a Ds timeline and a new strategic plan that will take us through 2021. BUT we want to do so much more… Please make a yea- end donation so we can continue to improve the lives of individuals with Down syndrome and their families. Thank you!

It is my pleasure to serve you,

Lisa Wells

P.S. We want to see adults being employed in larger numbers in the community...Our theme for 2018 is going to be employment. We will make it easy for employers to understand why and how to employ individuals with Down syndrome in the community. Your support is important!
