Fireflies and Whoopie Pie: Building Community With Gigi’s Playhouse


Fireflies and Whoopie Pie

This week’s episode of Fireflies and Whoopie Pie features a fantastic local organization helping build the Down syndrome community! Alisha Fitzwater, program director for Gigi’s Playhouse Lancaster, joins the show to talk about the programs they offer, how to get involved, and how this community helps people with Down syndrome and their families. 

Show Notes

GiGi’s Playhouse in Lancaster, PA opened on January 11, 2020, thanks to a great community of families, friends, educators, therapists and community members who worked together to make the dream a reality. We believe that by opening GiGi’s Playhouse, we now have an even greater opportunity to impact more families in Lancaster and the surrounding counties.

GiGi’s Playhouse is the only worldwide network of Down syndrome achievement centers; changing lives through free, results-driven programs for individuals of all ages, their families & communities. In helping individuals with Down syndrome achieve their best of all, we also advance our larger vision of global acceptance for people of all abilities. GiGi’s was established 20 years ago and has 60+ locations.
