Summary

Hundreds of children in Portland are sleeping on the floor each night for lack of a bed. Beds for Kids ensures that low-income children have a mattress, box spring, pillow, sheets, and blankets to call their own.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Community Warehouse collects and redistributes donated household furnishings to low-income people in need. Our clients are recovering from crises such as homelessness, disability, domestic violence, substance abuse, or natural disaster, and many are working poor families or seniors on fixed incomes. All are working to stabilize their lives and establish self-reliance, but cannot afford to purchase essential household items. The number one requested item is a bed for a child.

How will this project solve this problem?

The Beds for Kids project will provide donated mattresses, box springs, bedding, blankets and pillows to children living in poverty and sharing a bed or sleeping on the floor. The project meets an immediate basic human need. Having a mattress to sleep on and blankets to keep warm at night helps ensure that children are well-rested, healthier, and do better in school. Also, providing beds for kids allows parents to focus on immediate concerns such as employment, food, health care, or education.

Potential Long Term Impact

As the only furniture bank in the Portland metro area, we provide a critical resource for struggling families, case managers, and community members supporting sustainable reuse. This project fills the critical need of providing individuals and families recovering from crises with basic items to have a functional living space, create stability in their lives, and establish self-reliance.
