More Than a Bed provides essential items to foster, kinship, and adoptive families and children in a congregate care setting. The children we assist must be in foster care, under the Tribal Division of Child Welfare Services, are under legal guardianship, or have been adopted. We do not assist the biological parents for reunification of their biological children. We also assist teens who are in AYAP, TILP, or group homes as well as teens/adults who are in-care and have been diagnosed with developmental disabilities where they cannot live on their own. Legal documentation is required for all the children/adults that we serve. If you are a licensed foster family, we require a copy of your foster license as well as a photo ID/driver’s license of all shoppers.

We are open Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and the third Saturday of each month from 8:30 am – 1:30 pm. 

No, but please give yourself enough time to shop as we close at 1:30 pm. To expedite your time, we recommend you know the items you need for the children in your care to include sizes and specifics you are in need of.

The person providing care for that child/adult that whose name appears on the legal documentation or if necessary, an assigned caseworker.

Some items have a limit.  Clothing typically does not have a limit, however, we ask that the families take whatever their current need is.  Our guidelines are posted above and in the warehouse for your convenience. 

The MTaB Facebook Marketplace page (only for caregivers) requires the items be picked up directly from the person offering the item. We consider the Facebook page to be an extension of our warehouse, so everything posted is at no cost to the family receiving that item. Please keep in mind that MTaB Marketplace is an extension and not the primary source for providing for the children in your home.

MTaB requires a child be the age of 8 in order to sleep on the top bunk even though DCS has a lower age requirement.
