Sleep Safe Program: Providing Comfort and Security

The Sleep Safe Program is a cornerstone of Embrace Washington’s efforts to improve the well-being of children in foster care. Recognizing the importance of a safe and comforting environment for children experiencing trauma, Embrace Washington aims to provide 100 children entering foster care in the DCYF region with safe, warm, and comforting beds.


With a clear focus on measurable outcomes, Embrace Washington tracks its progress by the number of beds provided, ensuring that siblings can remain together and children are not separated due to bed shortages in foster or kinship homes. By collaborating with DCYF, foster families, and the broader community, Embrace Washington is confident in achieving this goal and making a tangible difference in the lives of these deserving children.
