Beds are unquestionably the most important item Flourish provides. Running of the Beds will raise awareness about the importance of furnished bedrooms for families overcoming housing insecurity. The event will rally the community to raise funding for 1,300 fully furnished bedrooms.

Your sponsorship will provide beds for the 1,300 homes we will furnish next year, changing lives for 3,250 people, including 1,500 children. We want to work with our long-time partners to make this happen. By promoting the event on mainstream news networks, we will gain widespread community awareness, while highlighting the key community partnerships that make furnished homes possible.

“Flourish played a big part in starting a new chapter in my life and I’m very grateful for that! I was with an amazing program who introduced to Flourish and I had just moved into a new home of my own at the time and needed help furnishing my home. I am a single parent of 3 with 2 grandkids and money was/is very tight at the time, but Flourish took a big load off my shoulders by supplying me and my family with everything we needed to be comfortable in our new home!
