Located inside The Attic Flea Market & Antiques in Nixa, MO this little clothing company is packed with great finds at reasonable prices. Created and founded by Hayle and her supportive mother, Hayle's mission is to provide quality products while growing her business to support others with down syndrome.
As a proud supporter of the Down Syndrome Group of the Ozarks (DSGO), Hayle hopes to one day employ other with down syndrome. With a heart for her community, her desire is to increase awareness for down syndrome while providing comfortable women's clothes with class.
Down syndrome (DS) also known as Trisomy 21, occurs when an individual has a 3rdcopy of chromosome 21. One in every 700 babies in the U.S. is born with DS, making it the most common chromosomal condition. In 1983, the average life expectancy of a person with Down syndrome was a mere 25 years old. Today, it is 60.
Started by a group of mothers in 2006, DSGO is an organization made up of a committed group of parents, professionals and other interested parties dedicated to creating an extensive network of support for individuals with Down syndrome and those who love and serve them in Southwest Missouri. Their goal is to become the leading resource of Down syndrome information for new and expectant parents, students, healthcare professionals, educators and all Southwest Missouri citizens. They also are striving to bring awareness to early intervention services, promote inclusive education, highlight appropriate medical services, encourage quality employment opportunities, and advocate for community awareness and acceptance.
Down Syndrome Group of the Ozarks exists to bring life and wellness to families who are advocating towards a community of inclusion for individuals with Down syndrome.
