Kids Under Cover supports vulnerable young people at risk of homelessness by building studios
There are many ways to get involved and help at-risk young people and their families.
Kids Under Cover has been working hard for 30 years to prevent youth homelessness.
We support vulnerable and disadvantaged young people between the ages of 12 and 25 years who are either experiencing homelessness or at risk of homelessness.
At the heart of our work is our Studio Program. One or two bedroom studios – with bathroom, are built in the backyards of a family or carer’s home. This provides secure and stable accommodation for young people at risk of homelessness.
We are the only not-for-profit organisation in Australia delivering the unique combination of studio accommodation and education scholarships as a practical and proven strategy in preventing youth homelessness.
Our solution is to:
We believe stable accommodation and education help young people stay connected to their family, to education and with their community. Studios provide safe and secure accommodation, give additional room for the family and coupled with a scholarship young people are given the skills to become independent, successful adults.
