SPONSOR A BED
Help Someone Throughout The Year
Every night of the year, we provide safe shelter to men and women who have nowhere else to go. You can make an impact in the lives of our shelter guests by sponsoring a bed for $500 for one year. Sponsorships can be made by individuals, businesses, a family or church groups. A sign at the bed will tell everyone who stays there that someone cares for them.
HOW IT WORKS
By contributing to our Sponsor-a-Bed Program, for only $500 per year. Your sponsorship commitment will begin on the first day of the month following receipt of your donation, and it will last for one year from that date. Your donation will help us provide all of the services that we offer to our guests during the year, including healthy meals, safe shelter, case management, daily support services and access to specialized services like medical assistance, mental health counseling, substance use disorder treatment and more.
A customized laminated sign will be placed at the bed with a personal message from you. This message can be one of hope, support and inspiration to each guest who sleeps in your bed.
In 2018, 60 generous donors sponsored beds for our guests, and we hope to double that number in 2019.
