DSAW Member Grant

The DSAW Member Grant Program is available to members of the Down Syndrome Association of Wisconsin – Children of the Heart – Greater La Crosse Area (DSAW-COTH-GLA)

Children of the Heart – Greater La Crosse Area is a local chapter of the Down Syndrome Association of Wisconsin, a nonprofit organization serving individuals with Down syndrome.  Their local chapter is “proud to serve as a resource to families in La Crosse, Monroe, Vernon, Juneau, and Adams Counties in Wisconsin” (as well as neighboring communities in Southeast Minnesota and Northeast Iowa).  This organization offers its members financial support through the “DSAW Member Grant.”  This grant can help to “offset the cost of items or services that can benefit the quality of life and development of a person with Down syndrome.” (DSAW.org/member-grants)
