    A Bed and A Book

    Tonight almost 2 million American children sleep on a couch, a makeshift bed or a floor.
    Tomorrow they can sleep in a clean, comfortable bed and read a book before they drift off.

About Us

We provide families in need with beds for their children and books to encourage the child’s learning and enrichment.

We work with referring agencies and community partners to ensure that children and families most in need will benefit from A Bed and A Book™

A Bed and A Book Package

At no cost to families, we deliver a sturdy twin-sized bed, a comfortable mattress, clean sheets, a comforter and a pillow. Families also receive age-appropriate books that can be read to their child or the child can read before they go to sleep. Our volunteers make, store, deliver and assemble the A Bed and A Book™ package to homes in the area we serve.

How Families Qualify

If you wish your child to receive our A Bed and A Book™ package then please contact us directly or one of our Referring Agencies (see below). To be eligible, children must be between three and eighteen years of age and must be sleeping without a bed frame, mattress and adequate bedding.
