My Very Own Bed

Mission Statement

To provide new beds and linens to children of families who have recently secured stable housing in the Twin Cities.

Impact and Programs

Accomplishments We delivered 440 new beds and dream kits to children in 189 families. Because most of these children were previously sleeping on the floor or sharing a bed or couch with a family member, the new beds provided them with the opportunity for improved sleep, which in turn improved their physical and mental health and focus at school. The beds also gave them a place to call their own, which gives them a sense of pride and increases their confidence and independence.
Current Goals Our goal for 2019, is to provide new beds and dream kits (new sheets, blankets, pillows, mattress pads, and stuffed animals) to 600 children in need. Additionally our goal for 2019 is to expand our volunteer activity to over 1000 hours.
Community or Constituency Served Families with children ages 2-17 who are in need of beds.
Geographic Area Served Twin Cities metropolitan area. In 2018, over half of our deliveries were in Minneapolis (34%) or St. Paul (23%), with another 20% in Plymouth. But we also delivered beds to families in 19 other metro-area cities.
