We are here to support families by providing: New Parent Packets to families beginning their journey; financial support to the Down Syndrome Center at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC for both the pediatric and adult clinics, two clinics established due to the generosity of DSAP members; and contributions to the community resources and national endeavors that focus on improving the well-being of people with Down syndrome.
