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.

Providing opportunities with Scholarship Funds

Are you thinking of enrolling your toddler in a dance class or need to buy a new bike helmet for your growing middle schooler? Maybe the PT said new AFOs are on the horizon or you just read about a great online reading program you’d like to try.  All these things - and more - are eligible for our scholarship program!  The NCDSA would love to support your family by offsetting the cost of these kinds of items with one of our small, one time scholarships.

NEW PARENT BASKETS

Northern Colorado Down Syndrome Association provides baby baskets to families with a new baby born with Down syndrome. These baskets contain new items such as books, knitted blankets, clothing, toys, informational pamphlets, and other useful items.

All of these items are provided by Northern Colorado Down Syndrome Association and generous donors from the community. Please contact us if you, or someone you know, would like a basket or you would like to donate items.

World-DS-Day

What is World Down Syndrome Day?

World Down Syndrome Day—March 21—is a global awareness day observed since 2012. It is to create a single, global voice for advocating for the rights, inclusion and well-being of people with Down syndrome!
