My Very Own Bed

My Very Own Bed was created to help families get one step closer to thriving in their new homes. By providing beds and linens to kids who need them, we’re making those new homes more livable and restful. By making sure the beds and linens are new, we’re giving kids and families something all their own — not a hand-me-down.

The impact from a bed provides children who experienced homelessness a comfortable, safe place to sleep. In doing so, children and families will experience the benefits of sleep which can include improved attendance and increased performance at school, and the ability to maintain attention and emotional stability

My Very Own Bed’s mission is to provide new beds to children ages 2-17 in families who have recently moved into more stable housing in the Twin Cities metro area. With each bed, we also provide a “dream kit,” which includes a set of sheets, a pillow, a blanket, and a stuffed animal
