DADS Organizational Structure
The Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services (DADS) was created to administer long-term services and supports for people who are aging as well as for people with intellectual and physical disabilities. DADS also licenses and regulates providers of these services, and administers the state's Guardianship program. DADS began formal operations on Sept. 1, 2004.

DADS is under the leadership of a commissioner who is appointed by the executive commissioner for the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) with the approval of the governor.

The agency is divided into the following programmatic and support divisions that report to the commissioner.

Office of the Associate Commissioner
The associate commissioner provides direction and guidance in strategic operations, planning and executive support to the DADS commissioner, while overseeing the Center for Consumer and External Affairs (CCEA) and the Office of the State Long-term Care Ombudsman. CCEA is responsible for ensuring accurate and timely internal and external communications, outreach to agency stakeholders, acting as the agency liaison to the Texas Legislature, and coordinating volunteer activities and community partnerships. The State Long-term Care Ombudsman advocates for quality of life and care for residents in nursing homes and assisted living facilities.
