MILTON – The Down Syndrome Association of Delaware will open a new office in Milton on Jan. 25 to expand services in Sussex County.

“We offer services to families throughout the entire state, but this is exciting news because we will be able to reach more of our members more easily and locally in Sussex County,” Down Syndrome Association of Delaware Executive Director Lauren Camp Gates said.

Founded in 1979, the Down Syndrome Association of Delaware is a non-profit organization that supports families, promotes community involvement, and encourages a lifetime of opportunities for people with Down syndrome. DSA of DE currently provides education, community events, and advocacy for families of individuals with Down syndrome out of its office in Newark, often traveling to provide classes and services in other communities.

Purchasing and opening the new office, which features office, conference, and meeting spaces and a large fenced-in playground, was a long-term goal of the Down Syndrome Association of Delaware, which had planned for purchase of a property by 2025.

According to the association, the new office was made possible by the ongoing support of many individuals and businesses in the greater Delaware community, including the Welfare Foundation, the McDonald Foundation, The Townsend Family Fund, Crystal Trust, Sussex County Council and the award of a federal grant through the American Rescue Plan.

The grand opening is scheduled for 1:00 – 3:00 PM, on January 25 at 28607 Meadowview Drive in Milton. The event will offer tours, networking, and light refreshments.
