Serving North Texas

Helping develop and support the abilities of persons with special needs since 1993

Our MISSION is to provide the highest quality care, training and support to adults with special needs, giving them opportunities to succeed in life, family and the community, while offering respite to their caregivers.

We are proudly the only licensed Adult Daycare Program in Denton County and surrounding areas serving aging persons with Alzheimer’s, and one of very few licensed Day Habilitation Programs for persons with developmental disabilities that is a charitable nonprofit.

Why Our Health, Nutrition & Fitness Programs Are So Important


Adults with disability are more likely to have a serious chronic disease.


Nearly half of all adults with disability get no aerobic physical activity.


Obesity rates for adults with disability are higher than for adults without disability.


Obesity rates for children with disability are higher than for children without disability.


Physical activity is lower for children and youth with disability than their peers without disability.


These facts and many more affect the 56 million Americans living with disability, a substantial portion of the population.
