In 2012, Luke Mickelson was a church youth leader in Twin Falls, Idaho, when he learned about a local family whose kids were sleeping on the floor. Mickelson and his teen youth group built a bunk bed for the family. When the bed was delivered, the response and feedback was so positive that Mickelson began building more bunk beds for families in need, eventually quitting his job to provide this service full time. As word spread, Mickelson not only received more bed requests, but volunteers in cities across America stepped up to join the movement. To date, SHP and its more than 65 chapters across the country have built and delivered more than 1,500 free beds for kids in need.
