We are a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization
dedicated to supporting families affected by Majewski (microcephalic) osteodysplastic primordial dwarfism Type II, Type I/III,
Meier-Gorlin, and remarkably similar but not otherwise specified microcephalic primordial dwarfism (MPD). Our mission is to
enrich the lives of individuals with these types of primordial dwarfism by facilitating and organizing opportunities for families
to meet, providing information relating to known health concerns and specialty care, and furthering research efforts.
We recognize many types of dwarfism and short stature
conditions exist. We encourage all families affected by dwarfism or short stature to join Little People of America's (LPA)
broad reaching community of support, irrespective of a named diagnosis.
We support our mission through annual fundraising activities and the generous support of our donors. Our organization
is composed of a group of voluntary, non-compensated friends and families. All donations go directly to supporting our mission.
