Background on SHP

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 2018, SHP’s bunk bed program has given a permanent home to almost 7,200 of our bunk 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 these funds are used

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.
