We Are On A Mission
GiGi's Playhouse New Orleans' mission is to change the way the world views Down syndrome (DS), and our vision is to see a world where individuals with DS are accepted and embraced in their families, schools, and communities. We accomplish this through consistent delivery of free educational, therapeutic-based programs for individuals with Down syndrome and their families at our Down Syndrome Achievement Center and by spreading the message of acceptance in the Greater New Orleans community.
GiGi’s Playhouse is a volunteer-run organization and we rely on the skill and dedication of volunteers of various levels of expertise to keep our programs vibrant, educational, fun and free. Come learn about our volunteer opportunities and how you can be a part of the GiGi’s team at our monthly Volunteer Orientations. Check out our calendar for dates and times!
