DADS LogoIn 2011, DSANV launched a Dads Appreciating Down Syndrome group. The purpose of D.A.D.S. is to assist and support, through fellowship and action, the fathers and families of individuals with Down syndrome.

Veteran and new fathers of children with Down syndrome are invited to the Northern Virginia (DSANV) chapter of Dads Appreciating Down Syndrome (D.A.D.S.) Meeting are typically scheduled once a month; usually the third Tuesday of most months.

Dear Dads,


Happy Tax day!  I’ve fallen a bit behind with this month’s meeting, this and that, and whatnot.  Accordingly, I am opting to postpone it until the 4th Thursday of the month.  Rather than gathering this Thursday, I propose gathering on Thursday, April 28th.  The Dogwood Tavern in Falls Church was pretty popular among those participating at the March meeting, so I suggest gathering there again from 7:00 – 9:00.  Here are the particulars:


Dogwood Tavern ( ;

132 W Broad St, Falls Church, VA 22046


Please let me know, if you plan to attend, so that I may get the reservations close to accurate.


I’ve gotten zero Dads clamoring for a Zoom meeting, so I think we’ll skip it again this month.


Please let me know, if you have questions, concerns, or such.


Kind regards,




Contact the local coordinator by email for more information.
