SANDS is dedicated to improving and enriching the lives of those with Down syndrome. Our purpose is to:
* Organize and host diverse community events to increase and promote community awareness and inclusion as well as to create new funding resources for the Down syndrome community
* Give back funds raised to individuals with DS and their families for the purpose of enriching their lives through participation in programs, therapies, conferences and more...as well as Community Grants to local support groups for their operation expenses.
* Develop and/or bring new programs and services to benefit the Down syndrome community in Southern Arizona.
We believe that every individual with Down syndrome should be given the right and opportunity to reach their highest potential in order to live fulfilling and productive lives within their community.
