Our Story

The Down Syndrome Association of Houston has been serving individuals with Down syndrome, their families, and the members of the Greater Houston community who serve them since 1974. Join us as we create a Greater Houston where individuals with Down syndrome are included more and empowered to fulfill their personal goals and aspirations.

DSAH was founded in 1974 when there was very little information about Down syndrome and little to no support for family members. In response, a group of caring mothers decided that Houston needed an organization to support families with children with Ds.


The Extra Mile…

“The Down Syndrome Association of Houston went the extra mile to reach out to other parents to provide insight…and support.”
