Our Story 

Down Syndrome Network Oregon began in 2002 by two women whose children were born with Down syndrome. It began as a small group of parents getting together to share their experiences over coffee. It did not take long to realize the value of a support network of parents and care givers who are raising a child living with Down syndrome or other challenges.

Nearly 20 years later, DSNO is a leading local resource for Down Syndrome support and offers a range of community-based programs to build an outstanding support organization for families, friends and individuals with Down syndrome.
