Welcome to Texas Prader-Willi Association

The Texas Prader-Willi Association (TXPWA) was founded in 2009. Small parent groups from around Texas got together to form an association to address the myriad needs of families coping with a child with Prader -Willi Syndrome (PWS). The original board members were successful in obtaining a 501c3 non-profit charitable organization status. This monumental accomplishment enabled us to achieve much of our mission. TXPWA is funded by the events we host, charitable donations and membership dues. We welcome you to join us.


Our mission is to enhance the quality of life for all those affected by Prader-Willi Syndrome through education, support and advocacy.


A full, safe and productive life for all affected by Prader-Willi Syndrome (PWS).

  • Provide education, insight and spread awareness to all that are impacted by Prader -Willi Syndrome by addressing the needs through available resources.
  • Advocating best practice standards of care for those who are living with Prader-Willi Syndrome.
  • To inspire and encourage research into this unique and multifarious syndrome.
  • To develop satellite support groups throughout the state of Texas.
  • Provide an annual Prader-Willi specific camp for ages 8 and older.
