Did you know children and young people make up two out of every five people experiencing homelessness in Australia? That’s 27,683 kids without a stable and secure place to call home.
There is not enough funding available to provide a Kids Under Cover studio to every family and young person that needs one. In the past 12 months alone we have received more than 850 requests, all of which will go unanswered.
The funds you raise as part of the Hike for Youth Homelessness can help Kids Under Cover to build a two-bedroom studio for two young people at risk of homelessness. With your support, we can strengthen their connection to family, community and education, and make a lasting difference in their lives.
