greeNest’s Up Off the Floor Program
greeNest’s Up Off the Floor Program provides new beds for children in Forsyth County from birth to 18 years. Partner Agency case managers identify children, through a home visit, who are sleeping on the floor or do not have a safe sleeping space. As funding allows, greeNest supplies new pack and plays with sheets or twin beds with new bed pillows and bedding at no cost to the family.
greeNest purchases compressed new-in-box mattresses and compact metal platform frames so that families can easily transport the beds without a special vehicle. We offer a selection of different bed-in-a-bag options so children and their parents can select their favorite bedding.
To keep this program running, we rely heavily on individual financial donations. We also accept donations of twin bedding and new bed pillows.
In October of 2022, we gave out our 1000th Up Off the Floor bed!
