GiGi's Playhouse Syracuse opened its doors in November of 2012 becoming the 12th Playhouse to open and 2nd one in New York state.  We have proudly been serving our community with free life-changing programs since then.  We continue to grow thanks to the hundreds of volunteers who serve with their time and talents, and thanks to the incredible support of a community that continues to invest in the mission of changing the way the world views Down syndrome!

We invite you to reach out and learn more, come in for a tour, learn more about volunteering, or let us be the soft place to land if you or a loved one receives a surprise diagnosis.

With over 55+ brick and mortar 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.

 

GiGi's Playhouse is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization and is solely funded by donations.
