I became aware of The Centers for Habilitation (TCH) when looking for workers with special needs to fold and package our Paper Clouds Apparel gear. When I took a tour of this amazing facility and got to spend time with the members that attend and work there I wanted to help them in any way I could. TCH provides services that support, care for and empower children and adults with developmental and physical disabilities. Services improve the quality of life, alleviate barriers to independence, and help Arizonans of all ages to reach their full potential.
TCH takes pride in their continuing emphasis on finding new and relevant ways to meet the needs of individuals with disabilities while promoting their independence and self-determination. Their dedicated and caring staff works to encourage consumers to make their own choices, gain confidence and control over their own lives, improve their abilities, and overcome barriers to quality living.

Now I want you to meet the amazing artists that created the designs on our current line of Paper Clouds Apparel products;
Theresa is kind and gentle. She likes to dance and listen to all kinds of music, and loves to sing along to “Take Me Home, Country Road” by John Denver. She enjoys going to the mall and short walks in the park and feeding the ducks. She also likes to have her nails done and wear pretty necklaces and bracelets. She likes to have long conversations with her staff and likes to give hugs.
