Led by Mattress Safe Vice President Andrea Hancock, P.E.S.T. Relief International is a non-profit 501(c)3 for “Professionals to Empower, Sustain and Transform lives.” In September, the Johns Creek, Ga., organization partnered with Ashley Furniture’s Hope to Dream Program to provide new mattresses for the children of Abba House.
Abba House offers an 18-month addiction recovery program for women. After 12 months of counseling and therapy, each mom is allowed to have her children live with her at Abba House until she graduates from the program. The beds were delivered just in time to give the children a good night’s rest when starting school.
Through the Hope to Dream program, P.E.S.T. Relief International placed 10 memory foam mattresses throughout three homes on the property. Ten additional mattresses were reserved to launch a program for mothers who graduate from the program. Upon returning home, each child receives a bed, mattress, pillow, sheets and comforter for a comfortable place to sleep while transitioning into his or her new life.
