Our Mission is to educate stakeholders, unite our community, and build bridges between worlds, so that individuals with Down syndrome and their families are connected to opportunities for an amazing life.

Founded in 1979, The Down Syndrome Association of Atlanta (DSAA) is a 501 (c)(3) Georgia non-profit organization dedicated to providing individuals with Down syndrome and their families life-long community connections. 

The 2nd Annual COLOR DASH is coming back to Atlanta with a hurricane of color to help raise awareness of Down syndrome and celebrate World Down Syndrome Day!


Registration is $40 (discounts are offered for multiple registrants in the same household) and includes a race bib, tattoo, color packet and t-shirt.  Register today here!!   


Individuals with disabilities face significant barriers to finding and holding employment and living independently because their access to critical safety-net programs can be lost once they establish a minimum level of savings creating a disincentive to work.

The ABLE Act would help more individuals with disabilities work, save, and live independently without losing access to means-tested benefits.  Join us for ABLE Act Lobby Day on Wednesday, February 24!
