Welcome to the Durham Down Syndrome Association (DDSA)! We are so happy to have you here with us, and can’t wait to introduce you to the rest of our supportive community. When you are ready, we are here to greet you with open arms, share our own journeys and guide you as you navigate yours.

It is a very exciting time preparing for a new baby, but you may feel overwhelmed and even frightened learning your child has Down syndrome. We are here to support and encourage you through all of your experiences of having a baby with Down syndrome. You are not alone!

You can contact our Family & Community Resource Coordinator at to begin being introduced to the amazing group of people we have in our community.
