Imagine sleeping every night on the hard floor of your room. Imagine not having a pillow and using a backpack instead. Imagine going to school, trying to concentrate even though you couldn’t get comfortable the night before. For families who have experienced homelessness, finding stable housing is an exciting and powerful step. But it’s not the end of the story: A family may have a new home, but still struggle to afford the basic furnishings that make it truly theirs - even something as simple as a child’s bed.
We're always in need of new twin-sized sheets, pillows and blankets for our dream kits.
Organize a bedding drive at your school, work or place of worship. Drives can be in-person or focus on virtual donations through our Virtual Donation Hub at .
New twin sized sheets
New blankets and comforters
New stuffed animals
Feel free to get in contact with us so you can pick up one of our donation bins and bring it to wherever you decide to host the drive. Drives typically last a month or so and once completed you can bring it back to our office or we can go pick it up for you.

Provides new beds and linens to children of families who have recently secured stable housing
My Very Own Bed was created to help families get one step closer to thriving in their new homes. By providing new beds and linens to kids who need them, we’re making those new homes more livable and restful. By making sure the beds and linens are new, we’re giving kids and families something all their own - not a hand-me-down. Our bed sets include a twin mattress and box spring, along with a Dream Kit that includes sheets, a pillow, and a stuffed animal. We make it easy on families by managing every step of the delivery, from transporting the beds to setting them up in each child’s room.
