The mission of Down by the Border is to enhance the quality of life and provide support to persons with Down syndrome and their families through promotion of public awareness, advocacy, and information sharing with a distinct goal in mind to help individuals with Down syndrome fulfill their dreams and life aspirations.
They provide a basket with information pertaining to Down syndrome for parents as well as several presents for the newborn. This project is an opportunity to inform parents about what Down syndrome truly is, and let parents know they are not alone in their community.
PICNIC AT THE PARK
The Picnic fosters parental and familial support in an interactive environment which is also opened to the entire community.
This is a community effort that blends BISD, The City of Brownsville Parks and Recreation, UTB and Valley Baptist Medical Center. This October festival was created to teach all children, including children with disabilities, to play and work together. A message is sent to the children and their parents to make them aware of children with disabilities, and why they are not so different from themselves.
