Cloud 9 Charities is an organization of local leaders and business owners with a passion for giving back to our community and working to make it a better place for us all. One hundred percent of the net proceeds from our community events funds Bedtime Rescue.
Kim Cloud has always had a heart to help those less fortunate. For years she has worked in various charities, giving her time and money until several of her friends and family suggested she start an organization that could raise monies to donate to the various local charities.
What a brilliant idea she thought. So, in 2004, Kim established Cloud 9 Charities with a handful of faithful friends and colleagues. Over time, the organization has grown to hundreds of part-time volunteers; they have hosted 25 events, and raised over 2.6 million dollars.
In 2012, Kim was motivated when watching a 60 Minutes TV program, which described the growing number of homeless, school-aged children in our nation. Kim discovered that we have hundreds of homeless children registered in the Lewisville ISD alone and decided to birth Bedtime Rescue, an operation which houses moms and kids in crisis. This effort alone has housed families for over 1800 nights. With our community growing, so is the need from so many helpless moms and children. It is Cloud 9 Charities' greatest mission to provide as many safe nights as needed for these families.
To provide temporary housing to families in our community who are in crisis and need safe shelter.

In the Community
One of the most enjoyable aspects of serving on the Cloud 9 Charities board is meeting with local community non-profits, hearing about the good work they are doing in our community, and learning how our financial participation can improve their services. Several times a year we are able donate a substantial amount of money to specific local charities because Cloud 9 Charities is operated completely by unpaid board members and volunteers, allowing 100% of net proceeds from all fundraising events to fund to these charitable organizations.
