Connect with a Parent Mentor
North Carolina Down Syndrome Alliance (NCDSA) Parent Mentor Program provides experienced parents of children with Down syndrome to parents with a prenatal or newly diagnosed child with Down syndrome. Parent Mentors will answer questions honestly and will do their best to describe the joys and challenges they have experienced in their personal journeys. NCDSA strives to match new parents with Parent Mentors that have similar experiences.
Visits can be arranged with you and your family at hospitals or at home. NCDSA wants to serve as a shoulder to lean on, a voice of experience, and a source of current information. We provide all new parents up-to-date information about Down syndrome along with information about resources available to your family.
Please e-mail Mahala Turner, NCDSA Family Support Specialist at mahala@NCDSAlliance.org or call (984)200-1193 if you would like to get connected with a mentor.
