The Foundation’s goal is centered on promoting inclusion, understanding and acceptance by expanding opportunities for individuals, families and communities touched by Down syndrome.  Last year, the Down Syndrome Foundation of Florida awarded over $150,000 in scholarships, and fully funded a variety of programs designed to create support the inclusion of Down Syndrome affected individuals and families, including:

  • College & Career Prep Program
    Held in conjunction with the University of Central Florida College of Education and Human Performance provides the opportunity for young adults to experience a taste of college life, learn some of the challenges and responsibilities of adulthood and discover some of the many choices open to them.
  • iCan! Work
    A work program which helps our members have meaningful, paid on-the-job-training experience in the community.
  • iCan! Bike
    Bike camp for 40 individuals with various abilities, to teach them to ride a two-wheeled bicycle.
  • iCan! Learn
    A research based program teaching effective strategies and providing customized materials to support parents, teachers and children in the educational process.
  • iCan! Communicate
    A comprehensive language program to help people learn to communicate with peers, family and teachers using an iPad as an augmentative tool.
  • Partners in Education
    Provides training and resources specifically geared toward educational excellence for individuals with Down syndrome to facilitate student and professional success in the classroom / school.

“We are THRILLED to continue our relationship with the Down Syndrome Foundation of Florida, and do whatever we can to raise money to support these integral programs inside of our community” said John Chiorando, President of Q1.

“The efforts of organizations like Quality One are invaluable to our efforts, and we couldn’t appreciate their support more” continued Camille Gardiner, Co-Founder of the Down Syndrome Foundation of Florida.

Earlier this week, Quality One partnered with “Johnny Magic,” the host of the top-rated morning radio show in Central Florida, and his Baby DJ Christmas Fund & Toy Warehouse program to allow area children from economically disadvantaged families to retain the magic of Christmas.

Each year, with the help of hundreds of dedicated volunteers from the community, Baby DJ collects toys and distributes them to children in families that otherwise would not have a Christmas. Last year over 6,000 kids received toys, food, and Christmas trees through the program.

With a philosophy built upon being a compassionate organization that values relationships and diversity, and treating everyone with love, respect, empathy, and gratitude, Quality One’s employees all pitched in and raised over $20,000 for the Baby DJ Christmas Fund & Toy Warehouse program. Partnered with the Target store in Hunter’s Creek of Orlando to purchase over 45 cart loads of toys and 30 bicycles, they delivered the gifts to “Johnny Magic” and his team of volunteers at the Baby DJ Toy Warehouse.

“It just touches my heart knowing that we have such a giving community that will take the time to go out and purchase toys for kids that they’ll never meet, and that this one little toy may change a child’s life. For me, this is everything. I’m overwhelmed, and it’s beautiful,” said “Johnny Magic,” founder of Baby DJ.

President of Q1, John Chiorando, added, “It is nothing short of a privilege and an honor to support the work that Johnny and his Baby DJ program are doing in the area we are proud to call home, caring for disadvantaged families that may not have the opportunities that we are blessed to have ourselves. I know the stress and anxiety as a parent not being able to provide Christmas for my children. So this is for the kids and for the parents, and it’s truly an honor to serve.”
