SWEET DREAMS

When requested by the Department of Human Services for foster children coming of age or by contracted organizations serving at risk or homeless youth, a mattress, box springs and bed frame are provided for their first apartment. This program was started in 2011 to meet a need not covered by other nonprofit organizations.

In 2016 we were able to meet all requests and provided beds for 12 emancipated youth.

For most of our recipients, this is the first bed of their very own. Having a furniture store call and schedule a delivery with them is sometimes as exciting as receiving the bed itself! Occasionally, recipients write to express their appreciation of the gift of a bed.
