Message from our Founder

Backpack Beds SAVE LIVES.

"In 2007 I wondered why homeless people (who don't have shelter and are sleeping on our streets) were not given bedding to keep them alive.

This led to my wife Lisa and I designing the Backpack Bed and starting the charity Backpack Bed for Homeless in Australia. The Backpack Bed program has since been used in 8 countries and saved thousands of lives.

In 2017 Backpack Bed for Homeless Inc. was founded to help homeless across the USA.

The Backpack Bed is an emergency bed - it looks like a backpack, weighs only 6.6lbs and rolls out into an all-weather protected bed with mattress. The Backpack Bed has been study proven to improve dignity, sleep, health, warmth, comfort and safety. It has been awarded 7 International product Design awards.

People like you can make a difference by donating to help fund more Backpack Beds for our friends on the street for people who need your help tonight."

Our Program


We partner with homeless agencies to reach homeless people without shelter and save lives.

We partner with Homeless Agencies such as:

    • Street Outreach
    • Drop in Centres
    • Street Doctors and nurses
    • Emergency / crisis accomodation (when they are full turning people away)
    • Other homeless Agencies

The demand for our emergency relief Backpack Beds and Fire Retardant Sleeping Bags outweighs our fundraising each year.

Your Foundation, Family Trust or Giving Fund can make a difference today.
