RGV DOwn Syndrome association

The mission of the RGV Down Syndrome association is to build relationships, advocacy and support for individuals with down syndrome and their families in the Rio Grande Valley. 

Who We Are

The Rio Grande Valley Down Syndrome Asscoation serves families in South Texas, including McAllen, Mission, Pharr, Edinburg, San Juan, Harlingen, and the surrounding areas. We provide support, education and advocacy for individuals with Down syndrome, their families and communities. 


The RGVDSA has activities for all ages. We have parent support groups, fun outings and education events. Please email info@rgvdsa.org or call 956-314-0821 for more information.

We're All in!

We’re All In! is offered in cooperation with Driscoll HealthPlan and the Rio Grande Valley Down Syndrome Association. Through fun class presentations led by the RGV Vipers entertainment teams (Venom Hype Squad and Snake Charmers) and the Vipers mascots, students learn about different disabilities and participate in activities to encourage inclusion, acceptance and kindness.

If your elementary classroom or school would be interested in a disability awareness presentation and visit from the Vipers, reach out to deborah@rgvdsa.org OR contact rick@rgvipers.com.

Thank you for helping the RGV grow as an inclusive community, where everyone belongs.  We’re All In!



We have serveral events throughout the year and we are always looking for fun and caring volunteers to come help out! If you would like to volunteer with RGVDSA or would like more information, please contact us.
