We envision a world in which every individual with Down syndrome has the necessary tools and meaningful opportunities to be an active member of the community.

The Montana Down Syndrome Association was formed in Missoula, Montana in the spring of 2014 by families and friends of persons with Down syndrome. We recognize the need for families to get together to learn from each other and provide support. We also wanted to make sure that families know about the resources, research, and services that are available for individuals with Down syndrome.
Our mission is to honor and nurture the extraordinary lives of people with Down syndrome by advocating for them as well as providing educational, financial, social, and emotional support.
MTDSA is a 501(c)(3) Organization: Tax ID#: 47-1115039

What is Down syndrome?

Down syndrome is a genetic condition that causes delays in physical and intellectual development. It occurs in 1 in every 792 live births. Individuals with Down syndrome have 47 chromosomes instead of the usual 46. It is the most frequently occurring chromosomal disorder. Down syndrome is not related to race, nationality, religion or socioeconomic status. The most important fact to know about individuals with Down syndrome is that they are more like others than they are different.
