What We Do

The Virginia Down Syndrome Association was established in 1983 by a dedicated group of people who sought to improve the lives of those affected by Down syndrome in the Greater Richmond area. VDSA has grown enormously in its 38 years, from a small, informal group, to serving over 650 active families with children with Down syndrome and an additional 7,800 persons associated as extended family members and community partners such as local businesses, non-profits, and 11 hospitals. VDSA's service area is extensive and covers an expansive area of Central Virginia, including 52 counties and 16 cities. VDSA generally welcomes between 25 and 30 new babies annually and they provide these families support and resources through a cadre of successful programs. Membership to the VDSA is free and welcoming to all families in the Central Virginia, Charlottesville, Harrisonburg and Williamsburg areas.
