Consumer Directed Services (CDS)

Join Our Family

CDS in Texas has been offering support to people who choose consumer direction for over 10 years. We have grown from a tiny agency to one of the largest in Texas. What hasn’t changed is our commitment to individual service and support.

CDS in Texas provides a foundation of support that enables individuals with disabilities to self-direct their care. The cornerstone of our success is our team's compassionate and dedicated relationship with the families we serve.
