Our Future Impact

Life as a legal adult at 18 and into your 20’s play a pivotal role in growth and development of self. You find out who you truly are, and what you are destined for. You grow through experience, and are able to have the time of your life, and meet friends and people who support your goals and dreams. We want just that for my Inspirations of DODSA. They deserve to have the time of their lives as a young adult in safe settings with friends.

Our goal for the near future is to build a recreational facility where Young Adults with IDD (Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities) are able to receive opportunities to safely enjoy an environment that meets their needs for
socialization and growth.

The person who inspired our founder, Demi Cruz, to build Diamonds of Destiny is her goddaughter, Chelsea, who has down-syndrome. Demi and Chelsea grew up together. They both share a love for music, dancing, and can give a great karaoke run.

Demi wants  all young adults with IDD to grow in socialization skills and to have fun in a safe space filled with nothing but love and support for their future endeavours.

"I believe that just like a diamond we start off as rocks and once polished by our educators, families, and support system we become beautiful diamonds and members of a cohesive community regardless of different abilities and backgrounds. Demi Cruz, 26 "

This is a dream in the making.

Get Involved

We are ecstatic of building our legacy, but with that takes lots of assistance from our San Antonio, and surrounding communities. With every event we need Young Adults (18-30) to engage with our inspirations.
