Company Overview

D&S Community Services.

D&S Community Services was founded in 1991 by Hal Davis, Jr. to provide care for his nephew who was developmentally disabled. In the company’s early years, Hal slowly built D&S by periodically purchasing a new residential group home and then living in it as a direct caregiver. Once the home was established and operating effectively, he would find a new home, move in, and start again. Over the past 25 years, D&S has grown significantly and evolved to become a leading provider of residential services and supports for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities in Texas, Tennessee, and Kentucky. Discover the D&S difference and learn more about our unique services and programs. Today, Hal serves on the Board of Directors and actively supports our mission to provide exceptional community-based services that promote optimal independence and quality of life for individuals with special needs.
