Local connections matter
DSDN believes that local connections are critical for families so that they have a lasting support system for their child. Many times, local organizations and other parents are the first to reach out to families with a welcome gift or resources.
We are thrilled to be partnering with organizations across the country to support their new parent outreach. We believe working hand in hand will enable families to have a strong network of support.
