Welcome to CMDSS!
CMDSS was established in July 2003. Its first project, the 1st Annual Central Mississippi Buddy Walk held in October 2003, was an overwhelming success & showed the tremendous need for an advocacy organization for people with Down syndrome and their families. An active group of parents have united together to share ideas, offer emotional support, provide educational info, and to actively promote a positive image of people with Down syndrome in our community.

New/Expectant Parents

It can be overwhelming to any new parents. We are here to help and to listen. Start with our New Parent's Guide!
Upcoming Events

Don't miss the next BuddyWalk, Parents dinner or the next Down syndrome conference!

We are always in the need of volunteers to help out with events.
