Brand New Mattresses for Children in Crisis
When a child leaves an abusive situation the transition is often sudden and unexpected. It is not uncommon for children to leave an abusive situation wearing nothing more than a sheet. The trauma that can come from being removed from your family while nearly nude and then then placed in the care of strangers has been described by many, as being more traumatizing than the abuse itself. Legally a child must have a bed of their own in order to remain with their non-abusive family members. We are in great need of additional mattresses. We have the ability to purchase 378 brand new Tempur-Pedic Mattresses for $21,000. The mattresses are bed bug resistant and hypoallergenic. Your donation will help children in crisis remain with their non-abusive family members and out of the foster care system whenever possible.
