Who We Are

Sleep in Heavenly Peace is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that partners with the community to build bunk beds for kids from raw materials complete with mattresses, pillows and bedding. In 2019, SHP’s bunk bed program gave a permanent home to over 30,000 of our beds for children sleeping on the floor. The Disaster Relief Fund provides a new way to help those in need who’ve been impacted by a recent disaster.

How We Use Disaster Relief Funds

All donated funds received through our Disaster Relief Program are used to benefit children who have lost their beds and even their homes in tragedies across the globe. Funds go to local SHP chapters or agency partners for the construction and distribution of bunk beds to disaster victims.
