Who We Are

Our Mission: The Down Syndrome Information Alliance provides support and resources to empower individuals with Down syndrome, their families, and our community.

DSIA was founded in 2004 by three families seeking greater access to support, information, and services in our community. Since then, we’ve grown into an acclaimed non-profit organization serving Sacramento, Yolo, Placer, El Dorado, Nevada, Yuba, and Sutter counties.

Our passion has grown, yet our primary focus remains… provide direct services to the Down syndrome community through our events, programs, and resources. Our strong community of volunteers, donors, and families provide immense support so we may carry out this passion every day.

Featured Programs

  • Parent Mentors

    DSIA’s Parent-to-Parent Program matches families who receive a new diagnosis with a Parent Mentor who has similar experiences. You can connect with a Parent Mentor who will answer questions, offer support, provide resources, connect you with others… and simply listen. Learn More »

  • Siblings

    Each year DSIA hosts its Sibling Workshop designed for brothers and sisters to learn more about disabilities – using games, exercises, and role playing – in an accepting and confidential environment with peers. The workshops result in powerful social connections and early lessons in advocacy.

  • Hospitals

    DSIA provides up-to-date information and resources to hospitals and healthcare providers. Also, our new Medical Professional Outreach program will be launched soon!

  • Education

    Year round DSIA hosts expert speakers and workshops on various topics such as oral motor placement, social security, nutrition, education, marriage, special needs trusts, parent wellness… the list goes on!
