The Fun Coast Down Syndrome Association was started in October of 2002 by Paula Wilburn in an effort to provide services and support to families in Flagler and Volusia counties. Most of the members are parents, grandparents, or friends of families with someone that has Down syndrome. The organization encourages and supports families by offering services and advocating for people with Down syndrome. Their main focus is education. Educating our kids and the community, as well as providing the tools necessary for our local schools to better serve children with Down syndrome.
