The Down Syndrome Guild of Greater Kansas City is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to provide support and resources for individuals with Down syndrome, their families and the professionals 

who serve them. DSG seeks to provide the entire community with information and education to broaden awareness and foster positive attitudes regarding people with Down syndrome.

Expanding to meet the needs of those we serve!

In 2020, the Down Syndrome Guild of Greater Kansas City (DSG) will continue to expand our services, programs—and our campus—to better serve people with Down syndrome. We are not only diversify­ing and expanding our innovative, comprehensive therapy program that serves ages 4 – 20, but also launching new programs with the goal to serve all ages, from birth to late adulthood. With the expan­sion of our services, programs and staff (we now have 11 full-time employees), we have outgrown our current space in our office at 5960 Dearborn.








In July 2019, we acquired 5916 Dearborn, the building adjacent to our office and began fundraising in support of our project. With the goal of creating a world-class, 11,000-square-foot Lifelong Learning Campus, DSG will renovate our current space and the building next door.

Our Campus will set the stage for authentic, fulfilling lives by providing opportunities for people with Down syndrome to participate in programming, receive therapy, find meaningful employ­ment, and enjoy friendships and a sense of community.

Construction is slated to begin this spring with our goal for the project to be completed by August. Stay tuned for more updates on this exciting advancement that will enable us to better serve our families!  Help us dream big for the future by donating to our building fund.
