On April 19, 2015, GiGi’s Playhouse El Paso opened its doors as the first center of its kind in the state of Texas. Thanks to the generosity of many individuals such as yourself, for the last seven years, GiGi’s Playhouse has served as a trusted partner in achievement, belief and confidence for individuals with Down syndrome and their families and has already reached over 450 participants in El Paso alone.

GiGi’s Playhouse is one of the only Down syndrome organizations in the country with permanent, brick & mortar locations that offers therapeutic, educational and career training programs free of charge so that cost is never a barrier to participation or achievement. All programs focus on tangible and meaningful outcomes that improve lives. At GiGi’s Playhouse, we celebrate our individuals and families, and turn belief into action.

Our core message is Global Acceptance for everyone, which we live out every day by celebrating the achievements of individuals with Down syndrome through programs, special events and critical social change campaigns. With that said, programs are not free to deliver. To continue changing outdated perceptions and enrich the quality of many more lives, we need funding for programs and campaigns that will affect today’s and tomorrow’s generations.
