Child of God Bed Ministry

What a wonderful ministry this is! Woodland was inspired by Rick Son (Tim’s brother) and his church to make beds for children who need them. The Texas Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS) does everything they can to keep families together — we work with Child and Protective Services (CPS). One way is to find every child in the home their own bed to sleep in. Some families have children sleeping on pallets on the floor, some sleep 2, 3, or more in the same bed.

Woodland has received grants from Home Depot, 84 Lumber, Walmart, and HEB. We use grants and donations to purchase lumber, hardware, mattresses, mattress covers, pillows, and sheets. Each child also receives a $50 gift card to a big box store to pick out their own bedspread, comforter, or blanket.

We have volunteers who build most of the beds (we’ve purchased a few). We have volunteers who deliver the beds. We’ve partnered with South Texas Alliance for Orphans to help us with delivery. South Texas Alliance for Orphans is an organization that helps churches in serving foster children and their families.

Each bed and bedding costs about $419 (not including labor or delivery which are provided by volunteers).
