BUDS, (Bringing Up Down Syndrome) is a southern New Jersey non-profit organization whose purpose is to help families of children with Down Syndrome by offering a variety of programs and services. We have over 300 families in our organization covering Burlington, Gloucester, and Camden Counties.Our goal is to educate families on how to help our children be self-advocates, while showing the community that all individuals with Down syndrome and other disabilities can be valuable, contributing members of society.
This site is designed to help spread the word about BUDS, along with being a resource for parents and self-advocates.
We have various information available. To see what activities and events are coming up, view theCalendar of Events. If you are a parent of a young child with Down Syndrome, check out the Membership information, Friendraisers page, or learn more about the Buddy Walk.
