Our Mission

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. 

In 1984, a group of parents whose children had Down syndrome formed the DSG. They envisioned an organized network of resources. This vision has taken the DSG from an emerging grass roots parent movement to a premier nonprofit organization focused on advancements in education, inclusion and acceptance of people with Down syndrome.

DSG currently serves 37 counties in Kansas and Missouri. We provide support to over 1600 individuals with Down syndrome, their families and the professionals who serve them.

The Goals of DSG are:

• provide support and resources
• encourage active participation in the community
• foster positive attitudes
• help individuals with Down syndrome reach their full potential

We invite you to explore our programs and services, review our annual report, meet our partners, enjoy our photo gallery and learn about our history.  Office hours are Monday-Friday 8 AM-5 PM.
