About the Down Syndrome Society of Wichita

Our mission is to provide programs and services that educate, connect, develop and advocate to improve the lives of the Down syndrome community.

When her daughter was born with Down Syndrome in 1993, Darcy Eads started looking for help. She wanted to connect with other parents with a child who has Down Syndrome but found no parent support group in her adopted hometown of Wichita, Kansas. Because no community group existed, she and Lisa Woiwood, another mother searching for help and guidance, founded a parent support group that evolved into the Down Syndrome Society of Wichita (DSSW).

The organization began informally and has focused on offering support and education to parents and families of children born with Down Syndrome. DSSW incorporated in 2007, and after 20 years as a volunteer-driven nonprofit, hired Natalie Rolfe as its first executive director in 2016.




•Inclusion – DSSW is a place of inclusion, and we welcome members of diverse backgrounds and perspectives. We celebrate the members of our community with Down syndrome and create programming, events, and ideas focused around their unique abilities.
•Advocacy – DSSW advocates for those without a voice and empowers them to speak for themselves.
•Development – DSSW creates positive development opportunities for members of our community through growth-oriented programming and events.
•Awareness – DSSW raises awareness for the Down syndrome community by building strong local relationships and corporate partnerships. We value education and proactively spread the word through outreach on social media and other channels.
