About Our Chapter
Child bedlessness is a problem. As a national nonprofit with chapters spread across the United States, Canada, and Bermuda, SHP provides a solution. We are a 501(c)(3) volunteer organization that builds beds for kids ages 3-17 who do not have beds of their own. YOU can help our St. Mary’s County Chapter!

Want to be more involved?
Critical to our success is our core team. Our core team is a group of volunteers that take on a leadership role during our builds and deliveries. At a bed build, they simply provide instruction to our volunteers, oversee tasks and answer questions. It's really easy and no experience or skills are needed, you simply need a big heart and attention to detail. There is no set commitment, if you can help once every month or two that's great, once or twice a month even better. Our events usually take place on Saturday's anytime between 8 am and 3 pm. So what do you think? If you want to join our team or if have more questions click the button below and a member of our team will get in touch with you.Join our Team
