Canvass your neighborhood and recruit others to join the cause

Earn volunteer hours and help support our mission. As a group, family or individual volunteer your time canvassing neighborhoods in your community to invite others to sleepout to fight youth homelessness. Fill out the form and YSS staff will contact you with further info.

Why are we sleeping out?

They say that you don’t know what someone else is going through until you walk a mile in their shoes… well we are just asking you to walk a block. By stepping out of your comfort zone and learning more, we hope you are inspired to take action. Reggie’s Sleepout is about encouraging others to support the efforts going on at YSS and build empathy for those affected by youth homelessness. We sleepout under the stars so that one day our youth can reach them.

However, Reggie’s Sleepout is not about pretending to be homeless. The purpose of this event is to invite you to join others in solidarity for those in need and to spread awareness and raise funds to aid those like Reggie who struggle right here in Iowa.

And of course, it’s ok to have some fun with your sleepout! We hope you enjoy every step of the journey this year and encourage everyone to share how you sleepout this fall!
