How to apply with DADS

State of Texas application

To be considered for any position we have available, a State of Texas Application is required.

The application can be downloaded from the Texas Workforce Commission website in MS Word or PDF format. You also can find instructions for completing the application and an Employment History Continuation sheet on the WorkInTexas.com website.

It can be submitted in one of the following ways:

  • By fax to 1-866-245-3646.

  • By mail to:
    HHS Employees Service Center
    Attn: Recruiting
    P.O. Box 6629
    Round Rock, Texas 78683-6629
  • You may apply for jobs directly at the state supported living center at which you want to work.

Find and apply for a job using CAPPS

A list of Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services (DADS) jobs can be found online through the CAPPS Health and Human Services Jobs Center. (For tips on submitting an online application, click here.)

When using CAPPS, keep these tips in mind:

  • You can search for a job without registering; however, you must build a profile in order to apply online or take advantage of other features such as email notification of jobs that match your search criteria.

  • If you want to work for DADS, make sure you choose "Dept of Aging & Disability Svc" from the agency drop-down menu when you search for jobs.

  • If you want to look for positions at a particular state supported living center, choose that living center from the facility location drop-down menu when you search for jobs.

  • You can complete the application in more than one session. CAPPS lets you save your application and return to complete or make changes to it. You can also print a copy of your application. Once you electronically sign the application, and apply for a position, you will not be allowed to make changes. The system will automatically time you out after 20 minutes.

If you have questions about job opportunities at DADS, please contact the DADS recruiter at 512-438-3268 or send an email to: judy.garner@dads.state.tx.us.

If you have questions about CAPPS or experience difficulty applying, please call 1-888-TX-HHS-HR (1-888-894-4747) or 1-866-839-2747 (TDD/TTY). The Service Center hours of support are Monday through Friday 7a.m. to 7p.m. Central Time.
