We are proud to announce that Massachusetts Coalition for the Homeless‘s 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.”
