This wave of expansion includes 12 brand new chapters, each led by a dedicated president, and 10 existing chapters undergoing a refresh with new leadership at the helm. Together, they're all answering the call to end child bedlessness in their communities.

“We are incredibly excited to welcome these new chapters and presidents to the SHP family,” says Amy Andrew, Director of Training at Sleep in Heavenly Peace.“We are always impressed by the enthusiasm and dedication of the people who choose to take up our mission in their towns. They make it possible for us to serve children all over the United States. Together, we can ensure a good night's sleep for every child.”

The Need for Quality Sleep
An estimated three percent of children in the United States lack a bed, often forced to sleep on the floor, a couch, or crowded with other family members. A good night's sleep is fundamental for a child's healthy development, impacting everything from physical growth to cognitive function and emotional well-being.

SHP: Empowering Volunteers to Make a Difference
SHP chapters are powered by passionate volunteers, including chapter presidents and vice presidents. These leaders undergo a two-day immersive training program that equips them with the necessary skills to manage their local non-profit effectively. The chapter training covers leadership and management, development and fundraising, marketing strategies, and, of course, bed-building expertise.

“Meeting like-minded individuals and hearing their Sleep in Heavenly Peace stories was incredible,” said Greg Kraemer, chapter president of the NE-Omaha chapter.“The family atmosphere created by a group of people with servants' hearts will give continued purpose to my life and my efforts with SHP.”
