ACDS’s mission is dedicated to providing lifetime resources of exceptional quality, innovation and inclusion for individuals with Down syndrome and other developmental disabilities and their families.
Our ultimate goal is to empower every individual we serve to achieve their full potential, at every stage of their life, from birth through adulthood.
We need your help to achieve that goal!
We have been serving the disabled since 1966, long before society decided that the public sector should provide support.
Much has changed since then – the majority of our financial resources come from government funding. However, there is a gap in that funding that must be filled by the generosity of individuals and organizations that understand and are supportive of our mission.
You can browse our website to hear more about our history, our leadership team, and most importantly, about those we serve and how we serve them. Once you do, you will understand the important role we play in shaping lives – hopefully you will want to support our cause.
There are many ways that you can support ACDS, including contributing your time, expertise, services, money, non-monetary goods or services and other resources. The menu nearby offers a variety of choices.
Regardless of how you would like to help, you can be assured that we will be fiscally responsible in our stewardship of the resources at our disposal
-- 90% of our annual budget is committed directly to serving our constituents.
We hope that you will choose to help ACDS and greatly appreciate your support, in any form. Thank you!!
