The Down Syndrome Association of the Lowcountry, established by a group of parents in the 1990s, is a volunteer driven organization created for local families. We wish to see our children and adults with Down syndrome live fulfilling, empowered lives and strive to meet the individual needs of each family. Our mission is simply:
To provide support to new parents
Enrich lives through art, athletic and educational opportunities and events
To increase community awareness of Down Syndrome
To enhance employment opportunities for people with Down Syndrome, and
To improve education for students with Down Syndrome.
