21 FrienDS is a non-profit family and support group that was started by parents with the same interests in mind. We began in 2008 with the hopes to make a difference in the lives of people with Down syndrome, as well as their families, through play dates, family activities, seminars and informational meetings.

21 FrienDS welcomes all interested in being involved. Although the group mainly meets in the Southeastern, MA area, the families involved are from several areas of Massachusetts and Rhode Island. Families may choose to just utilize the website, while others are faithful in attending each outing monthly, and others just attend what they feel is beneficial to their family.  We meet monthly, from group outings to various locations, to Mom’s night out , to informational seminars and the most attended annual events our summer outing, Holiday event, and Easter Egg Hunt.
