Doss Estates's Story

The parents of physically and intellectually disabled children, Gerald and Darlene Doss, dreamed of a haven where people with disabilities could live comfortably. In 2002, the couple turned their dreams into a tangible reality. The husband and wife created a place that would allow individuals with disabilities to live in a community setting while continuing to advance their talents and skill sets.

The Doss’ goal was to provide the opportunity for individuals with disabilities to have a safe and loving place to call their own. Doss Estates is a great place to call home.

We strive to make the community and surrounding areas a better place for everyone and are constantly searching for ways to serve Pittsylvania and the surrounding counties.
