Our Impact

DSL is a resource to local families touched by Down syndrome from prenatal diagnosis to end of life. As the only Gold Accredited Down Syndrome Association in the country, we celebrate life by supporting, educating, and advocating to ensure each member is empowered to reach their full potential. Donations to Down syndrome of Louisville make an immediate impact in our community that you can see and feel when you meet our members and their families.

The mission of Down Syndrome of Louisville is to support, educate, and advocate for individuals with Down syndrome; thus enabling them to reach their full potential. We believe lifelong learning is the key to reaching one’s full potential, therefore we are committed to providing our over 50 educational programs and services to maximize the unique abilities of each person with Down syndrome. DSL also advocates for full rights in education and in daily life for all of our members; regardless of race, color, nationality, religion, or age. We choose to refer to our individuals with Down syndrome as “members” because we consider ourselves a family. We are committed to not only the member with Down Syndrome, but to supporting families, guardians, and professionals by providing them the resources to empower their child.
