“Judge not, and you will not be judged; condemn not, and you will not be condemned; forgive, and you will be forgiven; give, and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For with the measure you use it will be measured back to you.”

The Down Syndrome Foundation of Florida is a grassroots organization made up of families and individuals who believe that through creative programs and partnerships, we can facilitate opportunities and experiences so there is no mystery or myth about people with Down syndrome. Our goal is to promote inclusion, understanding and acceptance by expanding opportunities for individuals, families and communities touched by Down syndrome. At The FOUNDATION, we believe when POTENTIAL is given OPPORTUNITY the outcome is SUCCESS. It is our hope that individuals with Down syndrome will be seen as ''More alike than different,” and we strive to instill this belief in our local communities through our outreach and programs, benefiting the community as a whole, not just the individual. Would you like to help? Sign up to teach a child to ride a bike this summer at the iCan Bike camp. It is such a fun and rewarding experience, and great exercise!
