How to Qualify

To be eligible, children must be between zero and seventeen years of age and must be sleeping without a mattress (or on a makeshift bed), without a bedframe, and without adequate bedding. We consider a makeshift bed to be:

  • A couch
  • Sleeping on the floor
  • Sleeping on a pallet (blankets or clothes pushed together to make a bed)
  • Sleeping with a family member

The Referral Form may be submitted by anyone, however, each child in need of a bed must be referred by a Referring Agency. Please be sure to have the Referring Agency’s information on hand when completing the Referral Form.
