Finding Free Beds for Low Income Families?

I'm a single mother with 3 children. I just recently moved back to Indiana and am getting ready to start my job on Monday. I'm looking for some help with beds for myself and the kids. Is there anyone that can help me out?


When I moved I rented a storage unit and had the majority of my things stored, but there were some of our belonging that I didn't get into the storage unit before we left and someone promised to put them in there for us and unfortunately they never made it there. Now we are all sleeping on the floor in our new trailer and I haven't got the funds to go out and buy beds. Any information on a place that could help me with this would be greatly appreciated!

This is a link that has information about obtaining beds in your state (all states, you have to scroll down to find your state and county):


You may also find help with your State's United Way program:

Be aware that at this moment--3 21-20--all resources in all states are all absorbed with the COVID crisis so you may or may not get results from any inquiry.

You may need to go as local as you can and call (DON'T TRY TO GO IN PERSON) every church and religious group in your town and see if anyone can offer guidance.

Prayers for solutions for you.

Post back with an update.

You could try your local churches they may help you out.Advertise that you are needing beds on free cycle.Try contacting the Mustard Seed they provide gently used beds.Try craigs list they sometimes advertise free stuff.

There are some organizations that offer free beds to people in your situation. The only thing I worry about is bed bugs. I know that air beds are so cheap and if you can afford to get just one large one for now it sure would help. Other than this you can check on a few apps in your area that offer free items. There is also local churches that can help out. You can try and post on FB to see if anyone in your area has some beds they are letting go.


If you do belong to a church in your area talk wit hthe pastor and see what type of help you can get. Right now with the virus present it will be harder to find used beds and may not be such a good idea. Maybe the church can take up a small fund for you to help you get a few air beds. Some of them are as cheap as $25 for one. I have seen hem for less.

I would try as it's they are assigned by your location so it would be easy to pick up or deliver. Just look in the free stuff section.
