Our Mission

Northwest Kansas Down Syndrome Society (NWKDSS) is a local non profit organization that strives to connect families and enhance the lives of people with Down syndrome in our communities by providing emotional, educational, and social support to them and the professionals who serve them. 

Northwest Kansas Down Syndrome Society was established by several local families in October of 2015. Since its establishment, we have welcomed 8 new babies and their families to the group.
