Congratulations on the birth, or anticipated birth, of your child with Down Syndrome! Down Syndrome of South Central Kentucky welcomes you and we are here for you! We are a group of families with children who have Down Syndrome and community partners who are dedicated to providing up to date information on resources for your child, support through parent networking, educational and social opportunities for children and families throughout your child’s lifetime.

We are available to meet at the Buddy House at other times if needed.
