The faces of mental retardation and developmental disabilities are the faces of people of all ages with desires, hopes, and dreams. They are the faces of their families as they step into a lifetime filled with unfamiliar challenges. They are the faces of a condition that affects both a person's and a family's future. The Arc sheds light on resources and information available to improve quality of life.

At Cable Interiors, we are not only dedicated to serving our customers, but also to serving our community. We take pride in our involvement with the local community. Through financial gifts and donations of time and resources, we support several charitable organizations in the Dallas/Ft. Worth Metroplex. Our involvement, along with the support of many others, is helping to make a difference in the lives of citizens with special needs.
Below are some of the organizations that we proudly support. Please take a few minutes to read about them and the special services that they provide.
The Foundation's purpose is to provide specialized services and housing to children in need. Our services focus on under-served and "at risk" child populations. For some little ones, Jonathan's Place becomes home while their parent completes a residential drug treatment program. For others, Jonathan's Place is home until placement into an appropriate licensed foster or adoptive family is possible. Children receive medical, dental, psychological and developmental assessments while in our care.
