Thousands of children and their caregivers are now off the floor and sleeping in a safe, comfortable bed of their own. Children who have a comfortable bed of their own don’t just sleep better at night; nearly 80% behave better, get better grades, and improve their homework habits compared to children sharing beds, sleeping on the floor, or sleeping on unsanitary and uncomfortable mattresses.
One of those children belongs to Antonia, a mother of a 14-year-old boy who received a new twin XL bed and bedding. Before their case manager referred them to Sweet Dream Makers, her son Michael had been sleeping on an air mattress. She tells us: “I have no words to express how grateful we are to Sweet Dream Makers for the help we received.
Thank you for your kindness. Michael is more confident, enthusiastic, and motivated. He is making more friends at school. He was very happy when the bed arrived and helped put it together.”
Several studies link proper sleep at night to improved concentration, academic performance, better mental health, and fewer injuries.
Together we are changing the lives of local children and families in need.
“Together” refers to the area furniture companies and low-cost suppliers that provide individual beds, trundle beds, pull-out couch beds, cribs, and bedding to Sweet Dream Makers. “Together” also means you, caring people who understand that a good night’s sleep is vital to the health and well-being of children and families.
