Down Syndrome Association of Middle Tennessee

Down Syndrome Association of Middle Tennessee is a community-based organization of more than 700 families. Our mission is to enhance the lives of individuals with Down syndrome by providing support, information and education to those individuals, their families, professionals, and the communities that make up the Middle Tennessee region.

The families of DSAMT support each other, share information, and have fun! We work together to help show that individuals with Down syndrome are not defined by how many chromosomes they have and that with proper support they can live full and active lives, participating fully in the community.

DSAMT is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization funded by private support from individuals, foundations, community organizations and fundraising efforts. Fundraising proceeds from our fundraising pages go directly to help support programs for families in Middle Tennessee who have a member with Down syndrome.
