In 1993, a group of concerned parents worked together to form a small organization in Denton County to provide support and care to adults with special needs.

The nonprofit organization began as Adult Day Care of North Texas, located in Denton, and later became Day Stay for Adults.

In 2010, the organization continued its growth and opened a second campus in Lewisville.  In 2012 a new mission statement was adopted and the organization became Special Abilities of North Texas to better reflect the clients it serves.

Special Abilities of North Texas was named the 2015 Non-Profit of the Year on Tuesday at the annual Unity in Communities Luncheon, a collaborative effort of the Lewisville and Flower Mound chambers of commerce and the Highland Village Business Association, sponsored by Independent Bank.
