We are an organization of parents, friends, and families who have loved ones born with Down syndrome. It is our desire to help you gain information and support for the journey that lies ahead. We serve ALL AGES of individuals born with Down syndrome and offer activities and services for any of our Buddy House members. Almost all of our services come at no cost to you and we offer scholarship opportunities for anything that may have a fee.
We serve over 140 families in the BRADD region of Kentucky!
In 1996 five families gathered to form a support group for parents who had children with Down syndrome. Down Syndrome of South Central Kentucky is a 501(c)3 Non-Profit made up of parents, family members, friends, community members, and professionals who care for and support those born with Down syndrome in our community. The organization has ten-county outreach and on March 21, 2013, we opened the doors to The Buddy House, south-central Kentucky’s headquarters for Down syndrome.
OUR MISSION is to enhance the quality of life for individuals with Down syndrome and their families by providing support, information, education, resources, networking, and activities.
WE BELIEVE that inclusion and community support are essential in helping enable persons with Down syndrome to achieve their maximum potential and lead fulfilling lives.
This mission is carried out by Down Syndrome of South Central Kentucky’s Buddy House employees and volunteers.
Our volunteers are essential for the success of our programs.

We care about the safety of all of our participants so we ask that if you, or a member of your family, have been sick or running a fever within the last 24 hours to please not enter the building.
