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 2019 we were able to meet all requests and provided new mattress/box springs to previously homeless teens and those being emancipated from foster care.

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.
