DSAMC Mission Statement
The mission of the Down Syndrome Association of the Mid-Columbia is to enhance the lives of individuals with Down syndrome by providing support, resources, and information to families and community members and by promoting a heightened awareness and acceptance of individuals with Down syndrome.

Chris 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.
