"How can we expect children who have no bed to dream about their future."The increase in the number of homeless and transient students in US public schools is alarming. As a nearly 20 year classroom veteran, I have never experienced a growing epidemic in our schools such as this.
Recently, I have been impacted both personally, and professionally, by heart breaking stories from students in my school and in my community who have no bed, share a bed with multple siblings, or "couch surf" for weeks at a time.
The reasons are all different, but the results are always the same: the loss of stability, comfort, and hope
Providing portable beds will not solve all the challenges a homeless student faces, but it can ensure they will alwyas be able to rest their head on their own bed.
A unique partnership with Disc-o-Bed led to the founding of One Head-One Bed, a non-profit organization focused on soliciting donations to provide beds for students in public schools who have been identified as homeless/transient.
We can begin to change the futute for so many-
One Head and One Bed at a time.
