The Down Syndrome Association of Northeast Ohio (DSANEO) is a nonprofit that provides a wide range of programs and advocacy for individuals who have Down syndrome and their families.
Maria Sivertson, director of community relations at DSANEO, said the organization currently serves approximately 1,000 families in northeast Ohio.
“Our mission is to provide support for the individuals with Down syndrome so that they have a fulfilling a rewarding life,” Sivertson said.
One of the ways the gorup works toward that goal is through a gift shop called Artful 21, located inside the DSANEO building.
It’s filled with items for purchase that are made by individuals with Down syndrome.
