Kids Under Cover is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to preventing youth homelessness.
We support young people between the ages of 12 and 25 years who are either experiencing or at risk of homelessness.
We build relocatable, one and two bedroom studios, with a bathroom, in the backyard of a family or carer’s home. The extra room relieves overcrowding, eases tension and provides young people with a secure and stable environment. The studio remains in place for as long as it’s required. Kids Under Cover will relocate a studio up to four times during its lifetime, to help other families in need.
We then compliment with scholarships for education or job training, offsetting basic education costs to empower young people to achieve their goals. Not only are our scholarships awarded to young people residing in our studio, but also their siblings in the main home –helping to break the cycle of poverty and disadvantage.
