Who We Are


The Down Syndrome Group of the Ozarks began in 2006 with a small but dedicated group of parents and professionals. Our mission to build a network of support for individuals with Down syndrome and those who love and serve them in Southwest Missouri.  This local non-profit organization relies totally on grants and fundraising efforts to bring programs and services to Southwest Missouri. We promote a positive image of individuals with Down syndrome through education and community awareness. You can make a difference!
