bedbed for_every_child

The Massachusetts Coalition for the Homeless partners with public schools to assist students whose families are at risk of becoming homeless. In 2011, our advocates learned that many students in local public schools were falling asleep during the day because they did not have their own bed to sleep on at home. 

A good night’s sleep has a major effect on a child’s ability to come to school prepared to learn; falling behind in school due to a lack of sleep can have negative long term consequences on a student’s education and future.

A proven pathway out of homelessness is to ensure children of low-income families receive an education that will allow them to graduate from high school. To do this, we have to give these children the tools they need to succeed. One of these tools is a bed.

For every $250 raised, a child will receive a complete new bed: a twin mattress, box spring, bed frame and linens.

A Bed for Every Child has provided new beds to 1,314 children (and counting) across Massachusetts. The number of children waiting for beds is five times as much.
