About the Down Syndrome Association for Families of Nebraska

The Down Syndrome Association for Families (DSAF) formed in 1995 as a way for parents to share experiences, network, celebrate accomplishments and find solutions, support and encouragement for challenges.  DSAF provides new parents and families up-to-date and accurate information throughout the year for their loved one with Down syndrome.  The members of DSAF give our communities a bright, positive outlook on Down syndrome and help educate others on the unique talents, abilities and strengths that individuals with trisomy 21 possess. 

We are celebrating our 15th year of the Capital City's Step Up for Down syndrome Walk!  Join us in Stepping Up for the remarkable lives of those with Down syndrome.  Walk side by side our honorary guests with Down syndrome and the community of people who love and support them.  Thanks to the success of this walk and the support of our community, DSAF has grown in what it can provide to its members in events, conferences, meetings, materials and support.  

Please browse our website, utilize our resources, read our E-mail blasts, like our Facebook page, watch our Stars video, and engage in our expanding array of events. We continue our goal of moving the DSAF to become a state-wide organization. Don't forget to register and pledge online soon for the Step Up Walk!
