The Down Syndrome Foundation of Southeastern New Mexico is committed to provide support and education to all individuals with Down syndrome and their families. We service nine counties: Chaves, Eddy, Lea, Roosevelt, De Baca, Curry, Lincoln, Otero, & Dona Ana.
We do this by promoting community awareness and providing educational information to families, educators, medical professionals, and the community about Down syndrome.
We are always happy to help individuals outside of our service area. For more information, please contact us!
The Color Dash
The Down Syndrome Foundation of SENM celebrated World Down Syndrome Day by hosting Roswell's brightest 5k! The cloudy spring day brought 622 runners to DeBremond Stadium in Roswell. The white-shirted group of do-gooders turned colored skittles helped raise over $10,000 for the foundation! Bummed you missed out on the fun? Don't worry! Plans are in place to ensure another fun time next year!
