We are so pleased to shine a light on the local chapter of The Down Syndrome Association.
The Down Syndrome Association of Peterborough is a non-profit charitable organization that supports families and persons with Down syndrome.
Our mission is to support and enrich the lives of individuals with Down syndrome so that they will reach their fullest potential.
Our objectives are to assure parents that there are families in similar circumstances who can provide support, to promote awareness for people with Down syndrome on the part of educators, medical professionals and the community, to provide encouragement and support for people with Down syndrome so they will participate in all aspects of community life, and to advocate for acceptance and opportunities for persons with Down syndrome in the community.
