The vision of the ‘Community Groups’ is to provide support, connections, information, and be a resource to families while creating a warm, welcoming, empathetic environment. A Community Group is designed to create opportunities for families that have children with Down syndrome to network and share common interests, concerns, challenges, and information. 

They do this through community events, informational meetings, Facebook webpages, or playgroups.  Community Groups are categorized based upon “Area Specific” (i.e. Westside or Eastside) or “Special Interest” (i.e. African American or Single Parent).  Each Community Group is considered an extension of the DSAGC, but autonomy and decision making authority is given to the groups so they can effectively meet their unique purpose and goals for serving families and individuals in their community.
