Mission Statement

The Chasing Hazel Foundation  strives to educate and raise awareness about how important individuals with Down syndrome are to our community. We advocate for inclusion on all levels and compassion as a means to strengthen our community as a whole. We have a vision for the future to be a more accepting place where potential is highlighted, differences are celebrated and the uniqueness of each individual person is respected and appreciated.

"Off to College" Playgroup

We offer a playgroup session - “Off to College” Playgroup -  to young families that have children with Down syndrome from ages 0-12. It’s a group where there is a focus on socialization for the children AND the parents. A place to form relationships while the children explore and learn in a child friendly environment.
