To provide individuals with Down syndrome and their families with the tools, resources and support necessary to participate in, contribute to ​and achieve personal fulfillment.​

Centre Region Down Syndrome Society 

Centre County Down Syndrome Society (CRDSS) was established in 2006 by a group of parents to serve as table talk resource for families working their way through the world of special needs as it pertains to Down syndrome. We are thrilled to serve and live "Life to the Fullest" throughout the region. Thus, the board of directors unanimously voted in 2015 to change our name to Centre Region Down Syndrome Society and introduce a new logo that identifies us with our mission of serving families throughout Central Pennsylvania.
