The Down Syndrome Association of WI – Children of the Heart – Greater La Crosse Area is proud to serve as a resource to families in La Crosse, Monroe, Vernon, Juneau, and Adams Counties in Wisconsin. Due to our close proximity to our neighboring states, we also provide resources to families in Southeast Minnesota and Northeast Iowa.

Our vision is that we all understand the value of those with Down syndrome in our lives and our communities. We continually strive toward full acceptance, full access, full life and full potential.

DSAW-COTH-GLA is here to support families, not judge. We support and advocate for children and adults in a wide age range. We are respectful of the choices families are making based on the phase of life they are currently in.

DSAW-COTH-GLA is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization under the umbrella of Down Syndrome Association of Wisconsin. Donations are tax-deductable and will be used in the greater LaCrosse area.

 

The Down Syndrome Association of MN will be hosting their regional conference: Believe It and Achieve It on April 5, 2014 in Minneapolis.

World Down Syndrome Day - 3/21/14

3/21 was chosen as World Down Syndrome Day to represent the 3 copies of chromosome 21 that is unique to people with Down syndrome (typically, people have 2 copies of each chromosome).

Thanks for everyone who came out to support us at Chuck E Cheese on World Down Syndrome Day! We had over 400 people attend & raised $545.00. Coupled with the money raised from t-shirt sales, $1813 will be put towards out speech initiative!

Check out footage from this feature story on member Jenny Levondoski and her daughter, Eliza.
