A healthy place for area kids to lay their head, that’s the mission of a KC group called SleepyHead Beds. It’s difficult to know the exact number, but experts say thousands of KC kids spend each night on the floor or a couch to sleep. SleepyHead Beds has been trying to tackle the issue since 2010 by collecting good mattresses, disinfecting them and handing them out. They say there are currently 1300 families on their waiting list representing at least 3000 more kids in need of a bed.
