Sleep in Heavenly Peace
Helping Children in Need Sleep Better
All children deserve a safe, comfortable place to lay their heads. In Idaho and across the US, too many boys and girls go without a bed—or even a pillow—to sleep on. These children end up sleeping on couches, blankets, and even floors. This can affect their happiness and their health.
That’s where Sleep in Heavenly Peace comes in. They’re a group of volunteers dedicated to building, assembling and delivering top-notch bunk beds to children and families in need. Their organization has grown steadily over time, and they’re working on opening more chapters in different states to serve more people.
Help Kids Get the Beds They Need
Sleep in Heavenly Peace is always looking for people who want to pitch in and help. There are a variety of ways you can get involved and contribute:
- Building Bunk Beds
- Bed Deliveries
- Spread the Word
Sleep in Heavenly Peace schedules “Build Days” where they construct the beds. SHP and the volunteers take a pile of wood and break out the drills, sanders, saws and paintbrushes.
If you don’t have any woodworking experience, don’t worry—they use a simple, easy-to-follow design. Also, experienced volunteers will be there to guide you through the stages of the construction process.
After we’ve completed the bunk beds, the SHP volunteers deliver them to the families in need. These situations are pretty sensitive, so they only use a few volunteers for deliveries.
Sleep in Heavenly Peace has grown thanks to the people who have helped spread the word. Telling others about SHP may be the most important way for people to volunteer.
You’ll be amazed at the response you’ll get when you talk about your involvement with our group (honestly, we still are). The more people hear about SHP, the more volunteers they’ll have. And the more volunteers they have, the more beds they can build and the more children they can help.

Sleep in Heavenly Peace is always eager to help families in need, particularly ones whose kids have uncomfortable sleeping arrangements. Unfortunately, they can only help families who are close to their active chapters. Therefore, you must fit the following criteria to receive one of SHP's bunk beds:
You must live near one of Sleeping Heavenly Sleep's active chapters. (See a complete Chapter list at Sleeping Heavenly Peace.)
You must have an accessible house or apartment with a room large enough to fit one of our beds.
Sleeping Heavenly Peace must be able to contact you via phone, text or email.
