The DSAWT Fellow Parent Welcome Auxiliary welcomes new parents or caregivers who have recently received a diagnosis of Down syndrome for their newly born or expected child. New parents may have many questions ranging from what the future holds to what might be their child’s immediate needs. Parent representatives can reach out and provide support wherever needed.  Thanks to talented and generous local volunteers, new parents are presented with a handmade blanket and gift basket with resource information at the birth of their child.

If you are a new or expecting parent and would like to be contacted by a parent representative, please call Debbie Riffle, Southwest TN District at 731-499-1065, Jennifer Coleman, Northwest TN District at 731-336-0715, or email We would like to meet you and introduce you to our organization.
