SHP is a national charity whose motto is "no kid sleeps on a floor in our town." The organization believes a bed is a basic need for the proper physical, emotional, and mental support for children, and there are too many kids across the country sleeping on couches, blankets and even floors.

The VIP Foundation – the charitable arm of Scottsdale-based V.I.P. Mortgage, Inc. – partnered with SHP after hearing from employees who were already volunteering with the organization. The foundation is solely dedicated to funding the most critical needs of the under-recognized and under-funded.

"SHP has provided a valuable service to underprivileged families for many years, and the VIP Foundation is privileged to contribute to such a meaningful cause and help build the beds for kids," said Phil Shumway, VIP foundation director.
