Adult Social Group

Social Group

Adults with Down syndrome, ages 18 and older, are invited to participate in social activities one Saturday per month. Activities, dates, and times vary, depending upon the particular activity for that month. Cost is generally $5 per event, with the remainder of the cost subsidized by UPS for DownS. Detailed information can be found in the newsletter and through email.

These social events are intended to promote friendships among adults with Down syndrome, adult siblings, and community members. We encourage adults with Down syndrome to become more independent while participating in a variety of activities in the community.

Young adult siblings or interested volunteers should contact Pat Fogarty.

Do people with Down syndrome have feelings?

Yes. Just like everyone, people with Down syndrome have feelings. They can feel happy, silly, sad, sorry, or upset - just like you. People with Down syndrome enjoy friends and family and can be hurt when someone teases or makes fun of them - just like you.

Do people with Down syndrome grow up?

Yes. In adulthood, many people with Down syndrome have jobs, go to college, live independently, and support their communities. People with Down syndrome bring to their jobs enthusiasm, reliability, and dedication.
