What We Do

Our mission is to enhance the quality of life for all people with Down syndrome by empowering individuals, families and professionals with information & support through education, social programs and community partnerships.

Interesting Info

In a nation-wide survey, 99% of people with Down syndrome said they were happy with their lives.
The DSA of Greater Charlotte holds one of the only overnight camps for individuals with Down syndrome in the country.
We were a fully volunteer run organization for 24 years - while we've now grown to have paid staff, the majority of our programs are still led by volunteers!
