Donate to Reggie’s Sleepout

Reggie’s Sleepout was created in 2005 in memory of Reggie Kelsey. Reggie was a young man who aged out of the foster care system in 2001, and within three and a half months, was found dead in the Des Moines River. As a result of Reggie’s death, Iowa Homeless Youth Centers, a YSS organization in Des Moines, led the effort to develop the Iowa Aftercare Services Network to provide services to those aging out of foster care.

YSS serves 10,000 kids and families each year…one at a time. Our fundraising goal of $200,000 will help save 100 lives this year to meet essential needs, provide advocacy, and supportive housing.

Prizes will be given to the top fundraisers.
