Overview
Our Story

The Down Syndrome Coalition for El Paso is the result of our desire as parents to create a path to a brighter future for our children.

Founded in January 2015, with the tremendous support of the El Paso Community Foundation, the Down Syndrome Coalition for El Paso filled a need for community support, resources and advocacy for families of individuals with Down syndrome and other intellectual challenges.

In addition to creating opportunities to celebrate our children, the Down Syndrome Coalition for El Paso opened a preschool program for children with Down syndrome, implemented an annual educational symposium for parents and launched a book club for teens and adults with Down syndrome.

The goal of the Down Syndrome Coalition for El Paso is to partner with more organizations, more parents, and the greater El Paso community, to create a better world for all individuals with special needs. Thank you for your support!
