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.

Down Syndrome of South Central Kentucky is headquartered at the Buddy House, located at 522 State St in Bowling Green, KY. The Buddy House is open weekdays from 10:00 to 2:00. We are available to meet at the Buddy House at other times if needed. If you would like to be contacted by our New and Expectant Parent Outreach team, please contact us at (270) 796-5002 or email info@dssky.org. We would love to meet with you, answer any questions you may have, and provide a welcome gift basket to you and your baby.
