Your Opportunity to Make a Difference.

SEPT. 24 – OCT. 3: Join hundreds of others across the state in sleeping out in your own backyard to support youth who have been affected by homelessness in your own backyard.
Registration opens this summer. .Learn more at Reggiessleepout.org. 

THE EVENT: REGGIE’S SLEEPOUT
Sleep out to help end homelessness. Create a Team. Raise money. Work together with friends. Share an experience you’ll never forget. Have fun and give back in your own backyard. This will be the second year of our virtual event but the first year that all communities that YSS serves will be participating.

WHEN: SEPT. 24-OCT. 3 ; KICKING OFF FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 24
We encourage all participants to sleepout at least one night during the course of Reggie’s Sleepout. You are welcome to sleepout as many times as you would like during the span of the event.

WHERE: AT HOME
Pick any safe location within your yard, home or apartment. You can sleep on the floor in your kitchen or living room, assemble a tent or make a cardboard enclosure in your yard or come up with your own idea. The key is that you are making an effort to get out of your comfort zone (no beds!).

WHY: To raise awareness and money to address the critical problem of youth homelessness in Central Iowa. All proceeds benefit YSS transition programs that support youth touched by homelessness. This includes our community based centers in Ames, Boone, Iowa Homeless Youth Centers in Des Moines, Marshall County, Hamilton County and Francis Lauer in Mason City.
