bed-for-every-child-logo--2014A good night’s sleep has a major effect on a child’s ability to come to school prepared to learn; falling behind due to a lack of sleep can have negative long term consequences on a student’s education and future. A proven pathway out of homelessness is to ensure children of low-income families receive an education that will allow them to graduate from high school. To do this, we have to give these children the tools they need to succeed. One of these tools is a bed.

The Massachusetts Coalition for the Homeless partners with public schools to assist students whose families are at risk of becoming homeless. In 2011, our advocates learned that many students in local public schools were not getting a good night’s sleep because they did not have their own bed to sleep in at night. The Coalition took action and launched A Bed for Every Child. Thank you for your interest in the initiative – you can have a positive impact on children in need.
