In 2010, a group of individuals led by Daniel Fogarty, Tim Rowley & Brandon Holmes delivered a few furniture pieces to a family who had recently moved out of a shelter in Charlotte and into a home. Realizing that this family was one of thousands who were moving into housing and were in need of beds and other essential furniture, the idea of Beds for Kids was born.
In 2011, Beds for Kids officially became a 501(c)3 non-profit. Initially operating out of a 30x10' storage unit off South Blvd., Beds for Kids provided 282 beds to children and families in need. Fast forward to today, Beds for Kids serves almost ten times that number of beds and essential furniture to our client families.
In 2021, we relocated from our S. Tryon location to a 17,000 sqft warehouse in order to increase our capacity to serve!
