Beds for Kids mission is to provide beds and essential furniture to children and their families in need.
In 2010, a group of individuals led by Daniel Fogarty & Tim Rowley, delivered a few furniture pieces to a family who had recently moved out of a shelter in Charlotte, and into a home. Realizing that this family was one of thousands who were moving into housing and were in need of beds and other essential furniture, the idea of Beds for Kids was born.
In 2011, Beds for Kids officially became a 501(c)3 non-profit. Initially operating out of a 30’x10’ storage unit off South Blvd., Beds for Kids provided 282 beds to children and families in need. Fast forward to today, Beds for Kids serves almost five times that number of beds and essential furniture to our client families.
We strive to serve thousands of children and their families each year. Though the number beds and furniture delivered increases with each year, so does the number of people we are still having to turn down. Without the support of our community, we would not be able to continue advancing our mission of providing beds and essential furniture to children and their families in need. Together we are furnishing futures!
“As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace: whoever speaks, as one who speaks oracles of God; whoever serves, as one who serves by the strength that God supplies- in order that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ. To him belong glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.”
1 Peter 4: 10, 11
“By this we know love, that he laid down his life for us, and we ought to lay down our lives for the brothers. But if anyone has the world’s goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God’s love abide in him? Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth.”
1 John 3: 16-18
