Meet Erin. He is only four years old. Ever since Erin grew out of his crib, the only bed he ever had was an old mattress laid on the floor. Although not comfortable, he knew no better, since his older sister and brother did not have much more.
For Erin’s mother, a single mother of three children, there was never enough money to make ends meet to purchase beds for her children. That all changed when Erin’s mother attended an elementary school open house, where she learned of A Bed for Every Child Initiative.
