Our family support group is for anyone touched by Down syndrome in the greater Savannah/ Lowcountry area. Created in 2006, the LDSS reaches families in the eight surrounding counties. Meetings every third Thursday of the month typically feature a guest speaker as well as social time for families to interact with one another. We encourage people to bring their children. The LDSS is an affiliate of the National Down Syndrome Society.
We had our first Buddy Walk at Forsyth Park in downtown Savannah in October 2006. It was wonderfully successful, with nearly 1,600 people supporting Down syndrome awareness. For the last few years, over 5,000 people have regularly attend our annual walks. Our sixteenth Buddy Walk will be held in October of 2022! Register here!
Night of Champions
LDSS hosts an annual Night of Champions in April. This community event recognizes area businesses that employ differently abled adults, including those with Down Syndrome, and celebrates the contributions made by these employees. For more information, please visit this page and our Facebook page
