The Lowcountry Down Syndrome Society is a family support group to benefit people with Down syndrome and their families through local leadership, outreach, education and advocacy to champion and celebrate acceptance and inclusion.


The Lowcountry Down Syndrome Society envisions a world in which all people with different abilities have the opportunity to create their own path in order to enhance their quality of life, realize their life aspirations, and become valued members of welcoming communities.

Dear Friends,

I am glad to introduce our family support group for anyone touched by Down syndrome in the greater Savannah/ Lowcountry area. Candy and I joined with other families to start our support group in 2006. We quickly grew and now outreach to families in the eight surrounding counties. Our meetings are every 4th Tuesday of the month- typically with a guest speaker and social time for families to meet and interact with one another. We encourage people to bring their children. We are an affiliate of the National Down Syndrome Society.

We had our first Buddy Walk - which was wonderfully successful - at Forsyth Park in downtown Savannah in October 2006. Nearly 1,600 people came out to support Down syndrome awareness, and 5,000 attended our tenth walk in 2015. Our eleventh Buddy Walk will be October 1,2016.

If you have any questions or needs, please call or e-mail. To become an LDSS member, click here.
