About LDSS

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 fourth Tuesday 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.

Buddy Walk

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 thirteenth Buddy Walk will be October 6th of 2018. Register now!

Night of Champions

LDSS hosts an annual Night of Champions in May. 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 http://nightofchampions.org/

Camp Buddy

Camp Buddy provides physical, occupational and speech therapies for children with Down syndrome.  The Camp promotes the retention of the educational accomplishments that children have made during the school year by bridging the summer months to the upcoming school year.
