Mission

     We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based in Kentucky.  We are dedicated to improving the quality of life for people with Narcolepsy and other severe sleep disorders by improving their quality of sleep.   At Sleepy Heads, we work with businesses and donors across the country to provide people with narcolepsy and other severe sleep disorders a high quality bed at no cost to them.  

    Our founder is a wife and mother of three children.  Due to her incurable disorder, she was unable to work a conventional full-time job.  She had a terrible, lumpy, 35-year-old featherbed for a mattress.  As you can imagine, the sleep she got was, in no way, restorative sleep.  Having a terrible mattress made it all but impossible to tell how much of her fatigue was due to her illness and how much was due to her mattress.  She lamented her situation to members of er Narcolepsy Support Group and realized that she was not alone.  If you have ever had to sleep on a bad mattress, you know how exhausted you feel the next day.  Now imagine having to crawl back into that same bed two to three times a day for required naps due to an illness that has no cure.  This vicious cycle is that we live everyday.  With all of that in mind, she founded Sleepy Heads Inc.  

     Sleepy Heads benefits from local fundraising events across the country, generous personal donations as well as corporate sponsorship .  There is no cure for Narcolepsy and living with this disorder can be extremely difficult.  Providing a high quality bed and improving quality of sleep can drastically change the life of someone suffering with Narcolepsy or other sleep disorder.
