September's Charity of the Month is
Down Syndrome Association of Greater Richmond!
The Down Syndrome Association of Greater Richmond (DSAGR) bridges gaps in community services and provides opportunities that allow each person with Down syndrome to grow, learn and develop life-long living skills that will improve their ability to work and live independently and to reach their full potential. Raising a child with Down Syndrome (DS) is like raising any other child - it has it's challenges. DSAGR makes it easier. Our programs encourage community and communication among our families, and we cherish making connections throughout our membership. Through meetings, educational programs and social events, we arm our families with the tools needed to tackle the challenges ahead. We focus on three areas:
Educate - We advocate for awareness and understanding by educating our families and community about DS; offering information to help our members navigate the school years - from IEP's to behavior and everything in between.
Empower - We believe that individuals with DS are valuable members of our community and in whom all things are possible. With full opportunities and community support, individuals with DS will achieve great things.
Engage - We boast a membership of hundreds of families; a community within a community that celebrates and embraces raising children with DS. We listen, we learn, and we have FUN! Together, we help our families every step of the journey.
To help support them use Promo Code: DSAR with your next Papa John's order.
