About Our Chapter
Child bedlessness is a national problem, and as a national nonprofit with chapters spread across the country, SHP has provided the solution. We are a volunteer organization that builds beds for kids who are sleeping on the floor and there are multiple ways to get involved right here on our CO-Colorado Springs Chapter page.
Where do your donations go?
Our chapter is a 100% volunteer organization. Your donation stays in our community and serves kiddos right here. All funds are used to build and deliver our fully furnished beds to kiddos. Our expenses include tools, lumber and hardware for Build Days and new mattresses, bedding and pillows for deliveries.
Would you like to donate?
Make a safe, secure, tax deductiable donation to our chapter easily through our online donation platform.
You can also donate bedding items directly to us. We are happy to take new twin sheets, pillows, and comforters at our builds or contact us to plan a drop off.
