Arc championing for rights

Fabrics and Home created F & H Cares in 2019 to support children with disabilities by donating 25 cents per yard for each yard of fabric sold from the products purchased on its website. Each year, Fabrics and Home randomly chooses one of 13 disabilities from the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).

This is an ongoing yearly mission to help children, supporting the many not-for-profit organizations that provide students, families, teachers and staff affected by a disability with individualized resources and continuous support.The Arc family

F&H Cares gave donations to The Youth Mental Health Project in 2022 and to Autism Speaks in 2021. Read more here about F&H Cares.
