Empowering individuals with Down syndrome and their families to use their voice in creating the life they desire
Striving to create a deeper consciousness and understanding in our communities and region surrounding individuals with Down syndrome, their capabilities, and their needs
Nurturing individual and collective relationships, believing that authentic relationships are at the center of supporting and connecting our self-advocates & families
Who We Are
The Northern Colorado Down Syndrome Association (NCDSA) started off with just a couple of parents who were determined to bring together families in Northern Colorado who have a loved one with Down syndrome. Since then, we have grown to an organization that serves hundreds of people throughout the Northern Colorado area.
What We Do
NCDSA exists to provide support and connection for individuals with Down syndrome and their families through advocacy, awareness, and relationships.
