About Us

A picture is worth a thousand words

At our meetings our members come together to share insights, stories, and experiences that are unique to fathers of children with Down syndrome. Face it, certain responsibilities that generally fall on the shoulders of the father and having a child with special needs often affects how we approach these responsibilities. We invite expert speakers to discuss medical, educational, financial, social and many other challenges that affect our children's lives.

Our objectives are:

  • To create a network of fathers willing to develop a program based on the needs of the fathers themselves.
  • To enhance a father's knowledge and provide resources for engaging with children and individuals with Down syndrome.
  • To enhance personal advocacy skills.
  • To heighten a family's ability to cope with the unique challenges of raising a child with Down syndrome.
  • To provide a safe atmosphere of support where fathers can openly share.
