BENEFITS TO THE DOWN
The Down Syndrome Association of South Texas’ new location provides a sense of pride and ownership for the Down syndrome community and is welcoming to expectant and new parents. The building’s 4,600 square feet of interior space and outdoor recreation area that includes a playground, half basketball court, toddler play area, and splashpad, has a community center feel that lends itself easily to the addition of new and improved programming that will better meet the needs of the families served. The new location will encourage the building of healthy relationships both within and between families and will help decrease isolation while providing a safe place to Learn, Grow, and Play.
