At DSACC we understand how important it is to connect with the communities around us which is why we love hosting family socials to connect old friends & new! Due to Covid- we will not be holding any large group gatherings for a while. To help you connect with others in the Ds community, check out these new programs starting soon
For all gatherings, we ask that participants wear masks. We understand some of our friends with Ds struggle keeping them on, and just ask that they try their best for as long as they can, and everyone observe social distancing protocol.
Move & Groove with Julia: We are so excited to welcome our newest volunteer, Julia, who joins us from Fresno State where she is a Recreation major! Join Julia the second Saturday of the month to move and groove together through a new activity each month- Zumba, dance parties, and more! For everyone’s safety- we ask that our friends with Ds come with their own buddy if needed. We will also be limiting the number of participants so please register in advance.
$5 per participant.
Meet ups will go from 9:00-10:00 am

Strollin & Rollin: We invite parents of new kiddos, as well as parents with older kiddos, and our adults with Ds to get out and walk with us every Tuesday morning!
Meet at the Art of Life Healing Garden sign in Woodward Park at 9:00 am every Tuesday before heading out to walk around Woodward Park.
Folks in attendance can decide the route that morning. Please note, there is a park entrance fee to park inside Woodward Park. Or you can park in the shopping center across Friant and walk in free. The Art of Life Healing Garden is at the Fort Washington/Friant entrance of Woodward Park.
This is NOT a formally organized event- DSACC staff may not always be in attendance, but it is a great opportunity to get out, move, and meet new friends. If you decide to stroll with us, please observe social distancing and wear a mask whenever possible.
To enhance the quality of life for all people whose lives are touched by Down syndrome.
We envision a community that demonstrates acceptance, inclusion and appreciation for those who have Down syndrome.
