Register or renew your membership for 2020!
You and your family are cordially invited to join the Down Syndrome Network Oregon!
For nearly two decades, DSNO has been an informal, faith-based organization providing comfort and acceptance for families, friends, and individuals with Down syndrome and all intellectual disabilities. As DSNO’s numbers have grown, so has the need for an effective organization that can provide the structure to serve an expanding base of people.
The values that guide DSNO’s mission are advocacy, inclusiveness, equality and respect for life, compassion, comfort, hope and faith. Not only should everyone affiliated with DSNO have the opportunity to take part in its programs, but DSNO needs to know the people it is serving so it can direct its services and support to the areas of greatest need.
For a nominal annual fee of $20 In response to the current situation around COVID-19, we have suspended membership dues for 2020 so that you and your family will be able to enjoy the full spectrum of DSNO activities and programs.
You can be assured that DSNO will maintain member records with the utmost care and confidentiality. Our goal is to inform our membership of activities and opportunities that may be of benefit.

Community Based Programs
The funds raised through our fundraisers and generous benefactors provide valuable financial support for our programs and services.
We support families, friends and individuals with Down syndrome through small gatherings, family outings, providing educational scholarships and attending regional/national events
Basket of Hope
The Basket of Hope is our way of reaching out to you. It is filled with a few resources to help you learn more about how Down syndrome might affect your child and your family. Unlike the pamphlets that you receive from your physician, the materials DSNO provides offer an uplifting, positive – and often humorous – look at raising a child with Down syndrome.
Local Resources for Down Syndrome
It is our goal to inform families, friends and individuals about Down syndrome and create a vision of hope and awareness to demonstrate that every life brings value to the world.
