The Down Syndrome Association of Houston (DSAH) has been an important part of the Greater Houston community for more than 40 years. What started out as a small group that met in the basement of Texas Children’s Hospital has grown into a thriving, multi-faceted program with more than 1,800 members from all over the Houston area. DSAH has branched out into community groups in Baytown
, The Woodlands
, Northwest Houston
, Ft. Bend
, and the Inner Loop.
Our mission at DSAH is to provide programs and support to individuals with Down syndrome
, their families, and the professionals who serve them, and to create awareness in the community through advocacy, education and medical outreach.
We envision a community in which all people with Down syndrome have the opportunity to enhance the quality of their life, realize their life aspirations, and become accepted as part of our very diverse society.
As DSAH has grown, we have gradually developed programs for all age groups, including prenatal counseling
and/or adoption referral, New Baby Gift Baskets
delivered to area hospitals, Smart Start
for kids entering the public school system, and our Education for Life
program for adults. We invite you to learn more about Down syndrome
, read our current newsletter
, and explore this site to learn more about our programs and services and how to get involved.
Things Keep Looking Up!
