Congratulations! We are here to offer support tailored to your needs with information, education, programming, and connection to relatable families. We would love to warmly welcome you into our local Down syndrome community!
We began "painting the tri-state" as a unique way to celebrate our 2020 Buddy Walk. As part of the theme, we unveiled a mural at 209 East 12th Street in downtown Cincinnati. This mural will serve as a way for our entire community to celebrate the spirit of the Buddy Walk year round.
Every day we make meaningful strides to foster inclusion and to celebrate the lives of individuals with Down syndrome. There is no better place to show your support than through our Annual Buddy Walk.
This year, we celebrate our 40th anniversary! In 1981, a group of parents joined together with a commitment to “improve the quality of life for people with Down syndrome.” Four decades later, their vision continues to make a difference in the lives of thousands of people through our countless programs and services. We are excited to reminisce and look ahead at what’s to come with all of our families, donors, volunteers, and community members! Learn more
Our programs focus on therapeutic, recreational, educational and social opportunities for all ages. We tailor our offerings to reflect the need of our local families as we strive to provide valuable support and quality programs for those in our community.
The first three weeks of March (March 1 - 21), all Penn Station locations host a Round Up for Down Syndrome campaign to support their local Down syndrome organization. Funds raised in the Greater Cincinnati area support The Down Syndrome Association of Greater Cincinnati!
We want to enhance student learning with our one-on-one, individualized tutoring sessions. Therefore, we have worked with our Educational Advisory Board to offer Winter and Spring tutoring! Our tutors are experienced, local special education teachers who customize each learning opportunity to fit their student’s individual needs.
World Down Syndrome Day is Sunday, March 21st. It is recognized on this day to celebrate the 3rd copy of the 21st chromosome present in people with Down syndrome. Due to Covid-19, we are unable to be together at Winton Woods for this annual event. However, the "race" must go on! We encourage you to register and participate in your neighborhood by walking, running, strolling or simply celebrating on 3/21/2021.
