The Maren Fund is a nonprofit organization that provides evidence-based, academic support to children and young adults with Down syndrome in the St. Louis region. 


Our services fall into the following categories: 



We are a proud partner of The Learning Program™ of Orange County, supported by the Down Syndrome Foundation of Orange County.

We provide various classes to support the continued academic, language/communication and social skill development of children with Down syndrome from early childhood through middle school and high school.  

We offer additional services including one-on-one tutoring, summer programming options, behavior support and IEP consultations. 

"The Learning Program classes offered by The Maren Fund have given my child a solid academic foundation and a love of learning.  It has helped us become our child's first and best teacher and has helped us advocate for our child in the classroom"
