The Lifelong Learning Campus: Allowing Us to Expand and Serve People of All Ages!

Your past support has given us the opportunity to expand our services to support people with Down syndrome of all ages—which resulted in the need to grow our campus!

With the purchase of the building adjacent to us (5916 Dearborn), our Lifelong Learning Campus will offer space for the people we serve to:

  • receive therapeutic services;
  • gain employment and independent living skills;
  • be creative;
  • use technology;
  • make friends and work together.

Our Campus will increase access, capacity, and continuity of services, which will increase the likelihood of positive outcomes for the families we serve. Your support will not only impact the families we serve now, but also for generations to come!

The Lifelong Learning Campus: Allowing Us to Expand and Serve People of All Ages!

As an organization, DSG has outgrown our current facility and must expand to better serve the Down syndrome community—from birth through late adulthood. As we embark on our first-ever capital project, we will renovate our current space and our adjacent building to create a campus that offers our services and support in one, convenient location.

This 11,000 square-foot, multi-functional Lifelong Learning Campus will be the center of the Down syndrome ecosystem: a space equipped to foster community; develop and deploy innovative services; and embrace the full potential of people with Down Syndrome.

The Campus will offer space for people of all ages with Down syndrome to receive therapeutic services; gain employment and independent living skills; be creative; use technology; make friends and work together. It will increase access, capacity, and continuity of services, which will increase the likelihood of positive outcomes for the families we serve.
