Due to the current health crisis the world is experiencing, we have decided to host our support programs virtually for the remainder of the year.  This group offers emotional support, connections and education for families touched by a disability (not just Down syndrome!). Meetings are facilitated by BrightStart & DSACC staff, along with local experts.

The purpose is to connect new friends and old, gain valuable tools and support for a variety of topics relating to raising a child or adult with a disability.   Questions? Contact or
