About GiGi’s Playhouse Houston
Howdy Houston! We are a group of dedicated family & community members excited to bring GiGi’s Playhouse to Houston. GiGi’s Playhouse is a unique Down syndrome organization that will provide a permanent brick and mortar location offering direct educational and therapeutic programs to individuals with Down syndrome, their families and the community. All ages are welcome from pre-natal to adults. The positive and uplifting environment of GiGi’s Houston will empower those with Down syndrome to reach their highest potential.
GiGi’s Playhouse Down Syndrome Achievement Center’s mission is to change the way the world views Down syndrome through national campaigns, educational programs, and by empowering individuals with Down syndrome, their families and the community. We offer free therapeutic and educational programming to individuals with Down syndrome and their families.
With over 37 brick and mortar and pop up locations across the united states and Mexico and 200 inquiries to start new locations all over the world, GiGi’s Playhouse is the ONLY network of Down Syndrome Achievement Centers. Every day, we provide FREE, life-changing therapeutic, educational and career training programs for 30,000+ individuals of all ages.
Down syndrome is the largest chromosomal disability in our country and yet, it is the least funded. From a prenatal diagnosis to career skills, we make a lifetime commitment to remain by their side. Families are empowered with all the tools their child needs to succeed!
Through free programs and through our Generation G Campaign for global acceptance, we EMPOWER families by maximizing opportunities for daily achievement and lasting acceptance. To ensure lasting acceptance, we must show the world what individuals with Down syndrome are truly capable of achieving as students, co-workers, volunteers, friends, and valued members of their communities. Our program outcomes help advance this vital social impact goal.
