Crystal Lotterberry

Co-Founder/CFO-Vice President

Inspired by the lack of representation and desire to create a culturally competent safe space for Black families, this lifelong advocate and servant leader happily answered to call from fellow co-founder Kelli to come together to create a powerful organization that supports Black families and their loved ones with Down syndrome.

Kelli Caughman


The Black Down Syndrome Association is proud to be led by Kelli, a dedicated leader in the Down Syndrome Community. With a passion for providing families with better access to vital information, she is the perfect leader for the non-profit, driven by her experience as a mother of three children, one of whom has Down Syndrome.
