Support GCDSS

Its about Real People

Supporting GCDSS is a vote of support for the families with special needs right in your own back yard.



We realize that not everyone has a schedule that permits direct involvement with local activities or special events but that also doesnt mean that you cant participate. A donation is a way for those of us with hectic schedules and prior committments to show our support (and our love) for the cause to which we are all dedicated.

Our Mission

Our Mission

The purpose of the Gulf Coast Down Syndrome Society is to build a supportive network for families and individuals with Down syndrome to share information, strength and hope. It is our mission to ensure that all people with Down syndrome have the opportunity to achieve their full potential in community life. At the same time, it is our goal to provide children and adults with Down syndrome peer groups in which they can form lifelong friendships. Parents, family members, individuals with Down syndrome, and anyone else interested in learning more are welcome to attend any of the events sponsored by GCDSS.
