How you can help
Get involved and help change the lives of homeless and at-risk young people
Our supporters are the lifeblood of Kids Under Cover. Without their generosity and goodwill, we could not change the lives of so many homeless and at-risk young people.
Unfortunately, the need for our services is growing.
There are many ways to get involved and help at-risk young people and their families and below are just a handful of suggestions.
Check out our Get Involved Factsheet.
How to get involved
