"It takes a village to raise a child" - African Proverb.

At A Bed for Every Child, we thrive off of the support from our village.  A village composed of teams coming together building beds; volunteers committed to sorting and organizing the donations of bears, bedding, and books.

 

Over the years, the support we have received has helped A Bed for Every Child continue to bring critical resources like beds and advocacy to kids in need across Massachusetts.

We are proud to announce that Massachusetts Coalition for the Homeless' A Bed for Every Child program is one of 130 local nonprofits to receive grants of $100,000 to $500,000 each through Cummings Foundation‘s $20 Million Grant Program.

Our Lynn-based organization was chosen from a total of 738 applicants during a competitive review process.

“We are thrilled to be a grant recipient of the Cummings Foundation $20 Million Grant Program for A Bed for Every Child’s Big Kid Bed Initiative.” Robyn Frost, Executive Director. “

A toddler moving into a Big Kid Bed is a childhood milestone.

Yet that milestone cannot be met for far too many toddlers growing up in poverty simply because their parents cannot afford to purchase a bed. The Big Kid Bed initiative will make possible for over 300 toddlers to have a new bed of their own thanks to the Cummings Foundation.”
