Message From Our Founders
Our son Angel is the reason we started ‘Downs In Motion’. After seeing him transition from high school to home, there was a lot of regression with his speech, social skills and physical fitness. We found that there was not much out there for young adults. He missed the daily interaction that comes with attending school; hanging out with friends and being surrounded by his peers. In August of 2018, our Church (Abundant Living Faith Center) provided the platform to develop a Connect Group that we could tailor our interest to. We truly believe that we were called for this journey and therefore with the strong support of our Church, we created ‘Downs In Motion’.
Our organization provides opportunities for our members and their families to interact in social networking activities.
