and Zelene Fowler, together with Aaron and Heather
Jensen, founded the Down Syndrome Association of the
Mid-Columbia (DSAMC). After Chris and Zelene's
second child, Henry, was born with Down syndrome, the
families were inspired to form what came to be known
as the DSAMC. Chris and Aaron are long-time best
friends, which added to the passion put into this
non-profit organization. Their vision was to form an
Association to provide information, offer support, and
create activities that would enhance the lives of
those with Down syndrome and others in the community
who interact with them on a daily basis.
The DSAMC helps create new dreams for families with children born with Down syndrome and motivate inspired thinking within the community to realize the potential of children and adults with Down syndrome. The Association works to raise expectations of children with Down syndrome through awareness and education. The DSAMC's message is one of acceptance and inclusion.
