How We Started
In July 2019, Matthew Houston Lovett built two twin size beds for two of his teenage sons and became inspired over the thought that many kids do not have beds of their own to sleep in. There were times growing up when Matt and his siblings had to sleep on floors. This, with the culmination of witnessing first-hand through his work, the many children without beds, inspired him to do something for those in need.
In August, after posting photos via social media of a few beds built, Matt received an overwhelming response of people who needed beds. After much prayer and meditation, he was led to begin this ministry thus, the idea for Kids Need Beds Too was born. That same month, Kids Need Beds Too, Inc. became an official nonprofit organization in the State of Georgia. Kids Need Beds Too, Inc is also actively working to obtain their 501(c)3 non-profit designation.
Matt is a minister of the gospel and is very passionate about this ministry. He is very excited to see how it will continue to impact the lives of the children served.
How We Serve
We are carefully researching and establishing the best ethical business practices to effectively develop ways to serve families with children in need within our community and surrounding communities. This way, each child and their family will be served on an honest need and not just a want. We are also establishing ways to work with referring agencies who vet their clients who are in need. This will allow us to better serves those who are in dire straights because they simply cannot afford to provide some basic living essentials on their own. It is our desire that each family be served with the upmost respect and dignity.
Matt and his team builds each bed frame by hand using quality materials and donates each fame to deserving families. They also accept donations from individuals, institutions and corporations. These donations can be new bed linens, gently used clean bed linens, pillows, frames and new or gently used but clean mattresses. And of course, we accept monetary donations that help us cover the costs of building materials and other necessary obligations to keep the organization running.
