Building a community of respect and support

Our families have more in common than simply sharing experiences of having a child with Down syndrome.

About Us


The Champlain Valley Down Syndrome Group (CVDSG) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit founded in March 2010 with the vision of creating a community of families in the Champlain Valley Region who have a child or family member with Down syndrome.  From that initial meeting, where a small group of families gathered, the CVDSG has grown to include over 70 families spread out across the Champlain Valley in Vermont and Upstate New York.
