Down in the Southland is devoted to fostering the development of lifelong education, social and life skills, among individuals with Down syndrome and their families in the southern suburbs of Chicago.  We inspire community acceptance by providing educational support and programs which will help our children increase their future skills.  We impress upon society that people with Down syndrome are positive influences and are important, productive members of society.

As (Jesus) passed by, he saw a man blind from birth.  And his disciples asked him, 'Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?' Jesus answered, 'It was not that this man sinned or his parents, but that the works of God might be displayed in him.' (John 9:1-3)
