Our History

In the late 1970s several parents of children with Down syndrome joined together to form a support group for families of individuals with Down syndrome. Nearly forty years later, with the help of many supporters, their vision and hard work has taken the Miami Valley Down Syndrome Association (MVDSA) from a small parent movement to nonprofit organization supporting more than 250 families in the Miami Valley of Ohio. We invite you to connect with our supportive community, our MVDSA family, by joining us at one of our many programs or events, or by contacting our office at (937) 222-0744 or office@mvdsa.org. We look forward to hearing from you.
