The Down Syndrome Alliance of the Midlands is a non-profit agency based in Omaha, Nebraska. We are parents, educators, medical professionals, activists and advocates committed to enhancing the lives of individuals and families touched by Down syndrome.
DSA was formed in 1999 by parents who felt a need to associate more closely with other parents of children with Down syndrome.
DSA is affiliated with the National Down Syndrome Society, the National Down Syndrome Congress, and Down Syndrome Affiliates in Action. We partner with many non-profit agencies in the Greater Omaha area in the effort to serve families touched by Down syndrome as well as various other disabilities.
