Dallas Area Parkinson Society

DAPS is dedicated to improving the lives of those impacted by Parkinson’s disease.

The best way to get involved is by:

  • Donating online
  • Hosting a fundraiser on Facebook in DAPS' name
  • Spreading the word about available free classes

GEMs helps support the free care partner support groups and speech, dance, and educational classes for those impacted by Parkinson's disease.

$100-plus per month pays for two speech classes, while $75-plus per month pays for one care partner support group led by trained professionals.

$50-plus per month pays for one exercise group that enhances strength, balance, and community. $25-plus per month pays for one Dance for Movement Disorders class, a musical alternative for regular exercise. $10 and up per month provides funds for exercise equipment for people with PD.
