St. Vincent de Paul North Sound Council provides free new beds to children under 18 years old to those who qualify. Parents may call our helpline to request a bed, or any of our volunteers may offer beds during their home visit if they see a need.
This program was established in 2004 by the request of volunteers who witnessed too many children sleeping on the floor. Many parents have recently secured housing and needed furniture for the whole apartment, especially beds for their children. One was a mother who had been “couch surfing” with her three children until she received an apartment, her children were sleeping on the floor for months when she called for assistance, with our grant funding we provided beds along with sheets and comforters for her kids. Our goal is to be able to fulfill every request from our volunteers when they witness a child sleeping on anything but a mattress.
This program is supported through grants and individual donations. Please donate if you would like to help provide a new bed for a child:
