Board & Staff

The DSA of NWI & Chicagoland's staff has a strong commitment to serving the many constituents of our organization. But first and foremost, they focus their energies on those who take advantage of our programs and services.

Our board represents a cross-section of our community and has a passion for the Down Syndrome Association of Northwest Indiana and those we serve. The members work hard to ensure long-term sustainability of our organization and oversee that the funds raised directly affect those in need of our services.

S.M.I.L.E Group Crazy Christmas Party 2017!

Come join the DSA SMILE Group celebrate the Holiday Season!
Be sure to register each person who will attend, participate in the events and the food.

Guests can make their own individual pizza or you have the option to just eat from the pizza buffet (Pick 1 option with registration)
(Event is for ages 18 years and older, all abilities welcome!)

We have a couple of things planned for fun, which will include an Ugly/Crazy Sweater Contest (Donte’s Staff will judge), sugar cookie decorating and finally a gift exchange ($15 value only, please).

The DSA SMILE GROUP Coordinator(s) will provide all the decorations and icing for the sugar cookies, but we’re asking for a parent/volunteer to provide/bring the sugar cookies for event. Please contact Cathy Tucker if you would like to help.

We ask that the gift exchange item is around $15 if you plan to participate. Males should purchase a gift suitable for another male and women should buy a gift suitable for another woman.

If you have any questions, please contact Cathy Tucker or email the DSA at
