About Us

The Desoto Habilitation Services, Inc. is a non-profit 501 c3 agency established since October 23, 1976, by a group of concerned parents of children with developmental disabilities.


Desoto Habilitation services was originally The Association of retarded citizens of Desoto and was founded on October 23, 1976, by a group of concerned parents of client's with mental, physical and developmental disabilities living in Desoto Parish.  They started in a small building located at 1700 Oxford Road.  The Association later made a resolution on October 17, 1991 to be able to purchase the land to build a larger facility at 1528 Old Jefferson Hwy. from Mr. Reimer Calhoun, Sr. 


It was the attention of this association to serve developmentally disabled  persons between the ages of 18 and above.  As alternate funding sources allowed, the associaton provided services to all eligible individuals regardless of age. It was the associatons' belief that people with developmental disabilities can be a productive part of society. 


Today, after 40 years of service, the Desoto Habilitation services, Inc. has touched thousands of lives through out our community and is still improving the quality of life for individuals with developmental disablilities in Desoto Parish.
