Our participants represent every ethnic, cultural, social and economic, religious and age demographic in this major metropolitan center. Each month our programs and events serve over six hundred participants in classes, events, lectures and parties. Families find their way from every borough and county of the New York Metropolitan area to receive support, friendship, insight and education.

We are the only community center specifically designed to celebrate and support individuals with Down syndrome, their families, and friends – including you!
Through social awareness and individual skill building, GiGi’s Playhouse is committed to rallying over one million voices who will friend and defend our loved ones with Down syndrome – and empower these individuals to tell the world, “I have a voice!”

GiGi’s Playhouse is a community and education center. All our programs are FREE and designed to empower individuals with Down syndrome to be their own best advocates.
