Across Canada, too many boys and girls do not have a bed of their own- or even a pillow - to sleep on. Approximately 2% of children in Canadian communities sleep on the floor or in the beds of their parents. Providing each child with a comfortable bed improves their sleep quality and restores dignity to families.
Sleep in Heavenly Peace is a group of volunteers dedicated to building and delivering homemade beds to children ages 3 to 17 years who are sleeping on the floor. While new to Canada, we are associated with SHP USA that originated in Idaho, 2012. Like SHP USA, we started building our first beds in the garage. With support from many caring Canadians, we are growing SHP Canada into a dynamic country wide charity. Join the momentum and start a chapter in your community. We are a national organization tackling a national problem - as much as 2% of Canada’s children sleep on the floor and we aim to change that. Our goal is that NO KID SLEEPS ON THE FLOOR IN OUR TOWN!
We are a registered Canadian Charity - Reg # 784917874RR0001
