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 at the Church of Saint Clement, located at 1701 North Quaker Lane in Alexandria, Virginia 22302 (Map Link).

Our next gathering will be the last for the year, as in December we typically defer to the DSANV holiday party. To make our November gathering special, Dads are encouraged to bring their children (any age) to join us for dinner. We haven’t yet selected the restaurant, but that information will be announced soon. The plan is to gather at a restaurant in Arlington on Tuesday the 19th (a week from today) at 7:00. Please join us for this special Dads gathering.

Contact the local coordinator by email for more information or to RSVP.
