Divine Living was founded by mother and son duo Tiffany and DaShawn McGary in Omaha, NE.
Divine Living is a state of Nebraska & Iowa DHHS-approved provider of Medicaid Home and Community Based Services for children and adults with physical and developmental disabilities.
Executive Director & Co-Founder
DaShawn McGary is an Omaha Native who obtained a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration- Finance in 2021. With his business degree, he is to oversee the operations and financial obligations of Divine Living. Although his passion is business, he’s been brought along during his upbringing to see his mother, Tiffany work with individuals with developmental disabilities. While in college, DaShawn worked for an agency providing Medicaid Home and Community Based Services for those with developmental disabilities. DaShawn worked for this agency for one year and four months.
During this time this is when he saw he was a natural nurturer and individuals adapted to him very well. DaShawn had also gotten the chance to work in the position he is now managing. He got to see things he loved in the agency he worked for and things he would do differently within his agency. Gaining this experience in the field before starting his agency with his business partner has boosted his leadership and management skills with his staff.
