About DSACF

Our Story

The Down Syndrome Association of Central Florida is a not-for-profit association founded in 1991 by parents of children with Down syndrome. It has grown from a few families to over 1,100 individuals with DS and their families. We serve families in an area of over 10 counties with help from more than 15,000 friends, professionals, volunteers and other supporters. We are governed by a volunteer board of directors. More than 50% of our board members have family members with Down syndrome.

DSACF is the leading voice for individuals with Down syndrome and their families. We offer hope, encouragement, and acceptance through advocacy, education, and awareness so that everyone may realize their potential as members of our community.
