  • GiGi’s Playhouse is a non-profit organization whose purpose is to create global acceptance for all individuals with Down syndrome. GiGi’s provides free programs every day for over 30,000 individuals. These programs range from therapeutic, educational, career development, and global acceptance. North Carolina is very fortunate to have two physical locations of Playhouses in NC, one in Raleigh and the other in Charlotte.  Although we have two physical locations, we want to reach individuals who might not be able to come to a Playhouse in person.

    GiGi’s offers 50+ therapeutic and educational VIRTUAL programs, 28+ LIVE National programs weekly for ALL ages, and 250+ On-Demand program videos! This allows individuals and their families to be able to join programs and become part of a community even if they cannot come physically to a Playhouse. I am hoping by sending you this email along with the pamphlet attached, you will give this information to family members in your community who could benefit from GiGi’s Playhouse. You can find more information on https://gigisplayhouse.org/gigisathome/.
