New Housing Ohio Clients Sleep Better Through OneSource Center Offerings

OneSource Center was able to improve sleep conditions recently for 128 individuals through nine agencies with the dispersal of new, high-quality Tempur-Pedic twin mattresses.  The mattresses were made available for a great savings through OneSource Center’s redistribution agreement with Good360, a global leader working with socially responsible companies to keep overstocked, returned and seasonal products out of landfills.  The added human benefit of these donations is that these items find grateful homes in the hands of people in need, often at great savings.

New Housing Ohio, based in Cincinnati, was one of the organizations that acquired numerous mattresses to be utilized in their program.  The organization develops affordable and supportive housing for people in need, and helps get people back on their feet if they are homeless or addicted and helps them remain stable if they are living with mental illness or developmental disabilities.
