You can count on DSG to be supportive, informative and there for your family. As we grow as a community, we hope you will be involved in our many activities and services. Families take great comfort in sharing and talking with other families, and DSG is proud to make these connections happen. If you are a parent seeking or willing to offer support to or from another parent, please contact the DSG office.
DSG provides Family and Friends Packets to our members to help their extended circle of support better understand Down syndrome. We invite anyone interested in learning more to contact DSG to be added to our mailing list.
