Empowerment Center

UPDATE: Construction is complete and we are working on outfitting the new space!

The Down Syndrome Association of Greater Cincinnati has been offering support, resources, connections, education, advocacy, outreach, and programs to the Greater Cincinnati area for almost 40 years. We are proud to support families throughout the entire life-span as we envision a community that embraces, supports and inspires all individuals with Down syndrome to live healthy, self-determined and fulfilling lives.

We’re always listening to the community and pushing ourselves to fulfill our mission through new and innovative ways. With that said, we’re excited to announce that we’ve been working behind the scenes for quite some time to expand our physical space to allow for more opportunities.

Because of our supportive and dedicated community, we are able to make this expansion happen! Our new Empowerment Center will be directly attached to our current office.  We can’t wait to share this additional space with you and your family!

What is included in the Empowerment Center?

  • Therapeutic equipment and technology designed for individuals with Down syndrome to learn, play, grow, and explore
  • Multi-purpose rooms for additional programming and sensory areas
