Down Syndrome Indiana Community Group Forming in East Central Indiana

Down syndrome occurs in approximately one out of every 691 births. It is estimated that there are 7,000 to 8,000 individuals with Down syndrome in Indiana. Down syndrome is indiscriminate of race, religion or economic status. It affects all walks of life. People with Down syndrome possess a wide degree of abilities and are active participants in civic, educational, occupational, social and recreational activities in the community.

Down Syndrome Indiana (DSI) is dedicated to enhancing the lives of individuals with Down syndrome and their loved ones. DSI offers community groups in various communities in Indiana that are led by families with children who have Down syndrome. DSI offers support, networking abilities and valuable resources to each community group and its families.

A new community group is forming in the Muncie area that extends to the surrounding counties. “Our family is excited to help bring Down Syndrome Indiana to East Central Indiana. We hope this new community grows into something that positively impacts families who experience Down syndrome,” Jody and Jodi Kress state as they will be leading the community group.

The goal is to help be as inclusive as possible to the families, friends and anyone who may be affected by Down syndrome. With many people not aware of the information that is available, the community group would like to provide support and help on receiving information.

The next meeting will be held on Wednesday, July 22 at Pizza King located at 4101 N. Wheeling Ave. Muncie, IN 47304 at 6pm. For any questions please contact Jodi Kress at jokress22@gmail.com. You may also visit: dsindiana.org for more information.
