You Can Support Our Down Syndrome Resources in Houston, TX

While The Center for Pursuit has been an integral Houston Down Syndrome support organization since 1950, many residents are still unaware of our facility and the value we provide to our clients and also to the community. That’s why we are reaching out to encourage people to visit and meet some of our IDD community members and see the many ways we help them reach their potential.

We offer properly screened volunteers many opportunities to make a positive difference in the lives of our IDD clients. You can tailor your volunteer efforts to match your skill set or step out of your comfort zone and expand your own horizons by trying something entirely new.
