We are 10,000 Beds, Inc. Our mission is recovery.

10,000 Beds is a nonprofit 501c3 organization working to connect those who need help with those who can help.


Our founder Jean Krisle, and her husband Hal, are on a year-long road trip, criss-crossing the country to connect with new and existing treatment program partners, connect with people and families affected by substance use disorder, defend the right to treatment, elevate conversations, change perceptions and celebrate recovery.

They sold their home and bought “Big Blue” our nickname for the 40′ RV wrapped in the blue and white of the 10,000 Beds logo – now Jean and Hal’s home. And they are #ontheroad4recovery for 2017 and some of 2018.

As we travel through the US, our goal is to 1) protect an addict’s right to treatment, 2) promote ethics in the recovery industry, 3) propel conversations around substance use disorders into effective and appropriate action, 4) partner with extraordinary treatment programs to provide scholarships to persons without resources who are ready, willing and seeking help for a substance use disorder, and 5) provide a recognized standard of excellence as we support our clients and partners.


In 2016 we awarded more than $1,000,000 in scholarships through our extraordinary treatment program partners. We were able to provide support to more than 250 clients.

In 2017 we expect to more than double the number of scholarships awarded last year. We expect to provide support to more than 1,000 clients this year.

We have more than 200 treatment program partners around the country. Each of our extraordinary partners donates at least one scholarship every year. And each has been vetted by our team of advisors, board members, and staff.

Applicants apply online through this website. Our 10,000 Beds online application process includes 25+ questions, a comprehensive review and assessment, consideration of unique needs to identify the appropriate program, and coordination with the selected treatment center to make certain they have a scholarship bed available and allow for their own clinical assessment prior to admission.


We partner with extraordinary treatment programs and with our partners, we provide scholarships to those who want and need help but are without resources.

Treatment programs can donate a bed (scholarship) by completing the Scholarship Pledge form on the 10,000 Beds website. If you represent a treatment program, please complete the form, we will reach out upon notice of your submission. If you would like more information, please contact our founder at

Not only do our treatment program partners already work day and night to help those battling addiction to get better, but they are philanthropic stars. This is one of the many things that make them exceptional.

Without exception, our partners not only give a scholarship through us, their business plan’s typically allow for providing a percentage of scholarships each year. They are extraordinary, giving, generous people.


There are incredible organizations raising millions of dollars to pay for scholarship treatment and help people battling addiction. We applaud them, but we have a different model.

For example, the other model would need to raise $250,000 to place $100,000 in scholarships.

With our model, if we raise the same $250,000 we can place literally millions of dollars in scholarships. Our overhead is extremely low and the ROI on contributions is extremely high.

For donors, partners and sponsors, our ability to leverage their contributions significantly raises their direct impact on the lives of others.

We are diligent in our efforts to strengthen partnerships, empower our team, and multiply resources to effectively maximize each and every dollar raised.

You can personally support 10,000 Beds by making a contribution here. If you are a treatment program wanting to partner with 10,000 Beds, please complete this form. We appreciate our partners, sponsors and donors!

At 10,000 Beds, Inc., we envision a world where individuals in recovery are not sidelined because of their past, but welcomed, embraced, and included as valuable, lovable people with limitless futures.
