Empowering people with Down syndrome to reach their full potential... that's our primary mission here at the Down Syndrome Association of Orange County.
We were founded in 1978 by a small group of dedicated parents sitting around a kitchen table. Now thirty years later, DSAOC continues to build on those strong traditions of the past by serving more than 2,000 families in and around Orange County.
The DSAOC Center, located in Costa Mesa, is the venue for many of our activities, events, seminars, and support groups. In addition, much of our work includes outreach and collaboration with an expanding network of educators, healthcare providers, researchers, therapists, employers, policymakers, and many others in the community. You too are invited to join us in our journey to a world where every person with Down syndrome is a valued member of society.
