Sibshop-color-logo

Sibshops are pedal-to-the-metal events where kids will meet other sibs (usually for the first time), have fun, laugh, talk about the good and not-so-good parts of having a sib with special needs, play some great games, learn something about the services their brothers and sister receive, and have some more fun.

Sibshops may be “therapeutic” for kids to attend, but they are not therapy. They’re a celebration of the many lifelong contributions made by brothers and sisters of people with special health and developmental needs.

This Sibshop is for siblings 8-13 years old

We welcome both Spanish & English-speaking families to meet DSACC the first Saturday of the month for some family fun.• When: first Saturday of every month from 10:00- 11:00 am
• Where: The Well Church- Fig Garden campus, lawn area (off Gettysburg) 4545 N Palm, Fresno 93704

Strollin' & Rollin'

One of the most important aspects of our organization is bringing our Ds community together. So in honor of that- 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.

OUR MISSION

To enhance the quality of life for all people whose lives are touched by Down syndrome.

OUR VISION

We envision a community that demonstrates acceptance, inclusion and appreciation for those who have Down syndrome.
