Since opening in January 2016, GiGi’s Playhouse Fort Wayne has grown to serve nearly 300 families in Northeast Indiana, Northwest Ohio and Southern Michigan! GiGi’s Playhouse provides free educational and therapeutic programs to individuals diagnosed with Down syndrome from prenatal diagnosis through career skills. We have witnessed several life-changing moments in our Playhouse, and this only happens because of believers, like YOU!
GiGi’s Playhouse Down Syndrome Achievement Center’s mission is to change the way the world views Down syndrome and to send a global message of acceptance for all. We change lives through the consistent delivery of free, educational, therapeutic-based and career development programs for individuals with Down syndrome, their families, and the community.
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.
