The DSASTX holds monthly opportunities for families to get together and enjoy life living as a community.

Featured Events


It is important for the Board of Directors and staff of the Down Syndrome Association of South Texas (DSASTX) to reach out regarding the evolving situation with the Coranavirus (COVID-19).  We have an obligation towards one another and in response to city/state officials and the CDC, consequently, we are postponing our 2nd Annual Collective Palette.

We will be keeping everyone posted with a new date.

Nothing is more important than the health and safety of our community, our guests, volunteers and employees, and of the individuals that we serve.

We don’t want to unintentionally burden our public health system.
We look forward to setting a new date and having you all there to celebrate with us. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the team at the DSASTX.

If you have purchased raffle tickets, please know we will hold your tickets for the new date.
Due to sporting events and concerts being postponed, some raffle packages will have a slight change to them and we are working hard to have everything updated very soon. We appreciate your patience.

Thank you for your understanding.
