After 18 wonderful years at Kids Under Cover, Jo Swift has announced her resignation as CEO, effective December 2021.

Jo was appointed CEO of Kids Under Cover in 2007, and under her leadership the organisation has had an incredible impact in preventing youth homelessness in our community. During Jo’s tenure Kids Under Cover has seen significant growth in personnel, revenue, and service delivery.

“I am so proud of how I have grown the organisation in my time at Kids Under Cover,” shares Jo.
