What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Our main mission and goal is to address childhood "bedlessness". In every community, there is a population of children who do not have a bed of their own, which affects self-esteem, learning, health and many other issues. Like any Non-Profit, we are searching for adequate funds to help us reach more recipients. The largest problem we have is the initial capital to supply new chapters starting up. Once these chapters are up and running, they operate nearly independently. But the largest issue that we face is the need for warehouse space in each active Chapter. If we were to have space in each chapter location, we would be able to supply our services year round and in a much more efficient manner. Another issue we have been facing is the cost and availability of mattresses and lumber.

NO KID SLEEPS ON THE FLOOR IN OUR TOWN

Sleep in Heavenly Peace (SHP) is a charity providing hand-made beds to children who don’t have beds of their own. Not only do we deliver these beds to children in need, but we partner with organizations, churches, businesses, and individuals to build them at events called Build Days!

With so many wonderful charities providing clothing, meals and toys, little help goes to something as permanent as providing suitable beds and bedding. SHP is a group of volunteer-led chapters dedicated to finding those young children living without the luxury of sleeping on a bed or even laying their heads on a pillow. Through the wonderful efforts of volunteers and generous donations, beds are built, assembled and delivered to those children who are otherwise sleeping on couches, blankets or even floors.

Sleep in Heavenly Peace, Inc. (SHP) was founded to fulfill a specific mission—to see that "NO KID SLEEPS ON THE FLOOR IN OUR TOWN!"

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our mission statement is that "No kid sleeps on the floor in our town" and we want to make our town everyone's town. We accomplish this by opening up new Chapters around the country, training volunteers how to do what we do and then continuing to support them as they support and service their community. We are planning to deliver 50,000 beds to children in 2023. We are also currently actively locating a shipping facility on the East Coast to help us become more effective and efficient in an area with high demand.

We have developed a program for volunteers interested in providing our services to communities they live in. As an organization, we feel it vital that we make the path for success as easy and clear as possible for our new Chapter Presidents. They need to understand that they are supported and have all the tools they need to be successful. Through our training program, we ensure that all of our Chapter Presidents have access to whatever they need to be successful. With our Marketing and Grant writing committees, we feel that we can make any willing Chapter President be as successful as he wants to be.

We feel that we can reach any volunteer with the desire to serve as we do. We offer and have in place training videos, one on one training, and cross training programs that are available to all new volunteers, as well as a list of mentors. We are able to fund them through our grant writing committees and help them broadcast their message clearly to their communities throughout Marketing Committee. The Board's main goal is to see that they feel and are supported with any technical question or tool needed to keep them in compliance as well as motivated to help the children in their own communities.

From 2012 through 2016, the organization in total consisted of only 2 Chapters, Twin Falls and Boise, Idaho. We completed and delivered 299 bunk beds to children in southern Idaho. 2017 was the year we started to branch out to other locations by starting new Chapters. From January 2017 to October 2020, we have trained over 200 chapter presidents in 45 states, Canada, and Bermuda. From 2012 through the end of 2020 our we built . Our next goal is to get chapters in every state in the country and even internationally. We want to reach as many children as we possibly can to ensure, literally, that "No kid sleeps on the floor in our town", but making our town EVERYONE'S town. As of the beginning of 2022, we have nearly 300 active chapters and have built over 100,000 beds!
