Houston Children’s Charity’s, “A Better Night’s Sleep”, has provided mattresses, bed frames, sheets, pillows and blankets to children in need throughout the Greater Houston area. Scientific research has shown that there are significant links between a child’s sleeping habits and their performance in school:
• Children who nap longer during the night have longer attention spans.
• Children who are diagnosed with ADHD have dramatically improved peer relations and classroom performances once better sleep routines have been established. Hundreds of children in Houston, Texas are in need of beds on a daily basis. There is not another existing program in the Houston area providing new beds and bedding on a monthly basis to children in need.
