COVID-19 Updates and Resources

Due to the ever-changing updates regarding COVID-19, the Down Syndrome Association of Greater Cincinnati has decided to suspend our in-person programs and events until further notice. We will continue to monitor the situation and keep you updated through email, social media, and our website.

Please know that while we are unable to have in-person programs and events, we are here to support you during the changes and challenges ahead. Our staff team is still working and dedicated to providing ongoing support, resources, and outreach services. We truly appreciate your continuous support and encourage you to reach out if you have questions or concerns. 

If you have already registered for a program or event, we will send specific correspondence to you via email in the coming weeks.
