SWEET DREAMS

History

  • Started in 2011 to meet a need not covered by other nonprofit organizations.

Definition and Process

  • 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.

Additional Details

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

Stories and Testimonials

  • 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.
