Benefitting Gigi's Playhouse of Cleveland
Down Syndrome Achievement Centers
GiGi’s Playhouse of Cleveland is all about achievement, belief and confidence. Serving children and adults of all ages, Playhouses across the country offer 30 educational and therapeutic programs at no charge to families. All programs aim to maximize self-confidence and empower individuals to achieve their greatest potential. Our literacy program alone teaches thousands of kids with Down syndrome to read every year! Founded by GiGi’s Mom in 2003 as a single location in Hoffman Estates, IL, GiGi’s Playhouse has grown into a strong network of 24 Playhouses including the first international Playhouse in Queretaro, Mexico. Last year, over 25,000 participants benefited from Playhouse programs.
Our distinct locations, no-fee programs, and positive energy help support thousands of families every single year. With that said, helping children and adults at GiGi’s Playhouse extends beyond the Down syndrome diagnosis. Our global message is acceptance. If you believe in a kinder and more accepting world for everyone, GiGi’s Playhouse is a place for you. If helping kids and adults pursue their education and wellness is important to you, GiGi’s Playhouse is a place for you.
