What We Do
For now, our face-to-face events have been cancelled for 2020. Thanks to the Suncrest Church Compassion Team, we are offering virtual events. If you want to hold a virtual event for a small or large group, email us at [email protected] to get it on the calendar.
New Family Support
Individuals who receive a pre- or post-natal Down syndrome diagnosis are welcome to contact us for a caring and warm welcome to our community. Often a time when there are many questions, our many families are willing to help with answers, guidance and support. Feel free to page through our user profiles to see many happy faces contributing to making the region a vibrant place to live and work.
Our families are committed to correcting misinformation and perceptions about the abilities of individuals with Down syndrome. We encourage healthcare, education and business professionals to get to know our population and benefit from our friendship. We have individuals of all ages able to come out and speak to groups, classes or just meet on Zoom to get to know each other better.
Programs & Services
As the state of the world changes, we hope to soon return to face-to-face activities for individuals of all ages. For now, watch our events pages for virtual activities–or volunteer to run an activity for us!
Many of our longtime friends get together often in small groups practicing social interaction with physical distancing.
This website includes a safe place for activities and interaction. Create a profile, join a group, post pictures and hashtags of you and your friends getting together and having fun. Put together your own Zoom activities and post pictures on your profile. Make parts of your profile for just your friends–and parts for new families to see how wonderful you all are.
Virtual Buddy Walk 2020
Feel free to join us for our 2020 Virtual Buddy Walk. You can register to participate in all or part of the virtual activities throughout October or Buddy Walk a mile on October 25th to celebrate friendship and community. And if we raise money along the way, great! We will use it to continue to support one another in years to come!
