About Our Chapter
Bedlessness isn’t a real word yet, but it is a real problem. And thanks to real people across the world, Sleep in Heavenly Peace has made real progress in the fight against child bedlessness.
All children deserve a safe, comfortable place to lay their heads. Sleep in Heavenly Peace fully believes that a bed is a basic need for the proper physical, emotional and mental support that a child needs. We are a group of volunteers dedicated to building, assembling and delivering top-notch bunk beds to children and families in need.
Child bedlessness is a national problem, and as a national nonprofit with chapters spread across the country, SHP has provided the solution. You can help us help kids who are sleeping on the floor and in other poor conditions. There are multiple ways for you to get involved right here in Kansas City from MO-Kansas City SE chapter page.

Where do your donations go?
SHP is a 100% volunteer organization. No one within our organization receives a dime, up to and including our board of directors. 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.
We have a volunteer opportunity for everyone!
No experience, no worries. Our builds are designed with everyone in mind. We have a task for people of all ages and all skill levels. It's easy and its fun. Our builds and deliveries provide a great opportunity for families, corporate team building and service projects.

Critical to our success is our core team. Our core team is a group of volunteers that take on a leadership role during our builds and deliveries. They simply provide instruction to our volunteers, oversee task and answer any questions. It's really easy and no experience or skills are needed, you simply need a big heart and attention to detail. There is no set commitment, if you can help once every month or two that's great, once or twice a month even better. Our events usually take place on Saturday's anytime between 8am and 3pm.

A few hours of your time will mean the world to child sleeping in an unfavorable condition or waiting to be placed in a home.
