Kids Need Beds Too
According to the Annie E. Casey Foundation, poverty is one of the greatest threats to child development. It can inhibit cognitive development and contribute to behavioral, social and emotional problems as well as poor health outcomes later in life.
This ministry, Kids Need Beds Too will provide new, hand made beds and mattresses to children who do not have a bed of their own in the Bulloch County and surrounding areas. The need for a good, comfortable night’s sleep is something we often take for granted. Every night, many of our children in our communities find themselves sharing beds, sleeping on couches, and even floors. A good night’s sleep is a vital part of a growing child’s need, especially when it comes to being awake and prepared to learn. This ministry seeks to find those children and families in need.
