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.) We meet monthly from 7:00 to 9:00 PM on the third Tuesday of most months. 

Dear Dads,

I hope that you had a wonderful summer and that your kiddos are ready for school or whatever comes next for them.  Let’s resume our meetings/gatherings in September.  I plan to host two:

  1. Zoom Meeting on Tuesday, September 21st from 7:00 – 9:00.  Please contact me to let me know your intention to participate and I’ll provide the meeting information.
  2. Meeting in Person on Thursday, September 23rd from 7:00 – 9:00.  I’ll plan to host at our regular venue in Falls Church – Ireland’s Four Provides: 105 West Broad St, Falls Church, VA 22046. Please let me know, if you plan to attend, so that I may notify the restaurant. 

Please let me know, if you have questions or concerns about these meetings. 

King regards,
