"The Panhandle Down Syndrome Guild (PDSG) was founded in 2002 by parents to support people with Down syndrome and their families. It is a volunteer group and membership is open to all who want to join. The PDSG promotes awareness of the dignity, promise, and potential of all persons with this genetic condition, and advocates on behalf of people with Down syndrome in and around the Panhandle of Texas. The PDSG wants to see a broad supportive community where people with Down syndrome can achieve the most out of life."
