About DSA of NWI

The Down Syndrome Association of Northwest Indiana, founded in 1983, serves both children and adults with Down syndrome. Our volunteers provide support, information and services not only individuals with Down syndrome, but their families as well. Thanks to the generosity of our community, we are able to distribute accurate as well as encouraging information and a personal contact to families experiencing the birth of a child with Down syndrome, free of charge.
