Creating Richer Lives Through Inclusion & Awareness


Every day, our volunteers, board members, friends, families, community members and

part-time staff create opportunities for individuals with Down syndrome or other developmental disabilities to live richer lives. 

About Us

The Down Syndrome Network of Northern Nevada is a non-profit organization started by a group of visionary parents who wanted to directly impact children, families and the community as they journeyed through life with a loved one with Down syndrome.  


Started in 2007, our grassroots organization is made up of volunteers that believe that through creative programs and partnerships, we can facilitate opportunities and experiences for people with Down syndrome. Our goal is to promote inclusion, understanding, and acceptance by expanding opportunities for individuals, families, and communities touched by Down syndrome.


Our Mission

The Down Syndrome Network of Northern Nevada is a network of family, friends and individuals dedicated to providing information, education, and support as we raise awareness of Down syndrome in Northern Nevada.

The Down Syndrome Network of Northern Nevada seeks to create a positive understanding of Down syndrome and envisions a community wherein all members are valued for their uniqueness, respected for their contributions, and assured the opportunity and choice to create their own path to fulfillment and success. DSNNN advocates for and with individuals with Down syndrome and their families to break down any barriers to full, productive and satisfying lives.
