COVID-19 Won’t Stop Us… Hangout Sleep Rough is back for 2020!
Give up your bed for one night to help homeless youths this winter.
On any given night in Australia….
Over 116,000 people will be homeless
Over 43,000 youths will not have a secure and safe place to sleep
460 Children under the age of 12 will be sleeping rough
250 people will be turned away from crisis centres
Where is the $$ going?
This year, KiP will be supporting Kids Under Cover. Our aim is to raise $7,500 to support Kids Under Cover in keeping at risk youth off the streets.
Kids Under Cover has been working hard for 30 years to prevent youth homelessness.
Kids Under Cover 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 their work is the Studio Program. Portable one or two bedroom studios – with bathroom, are built in the backyards of a family or carer’s home to prevent at risk youths from leaving home. Pretty cool, huh? They also provide scholarships for education or job training, to empower young people to achieve their goals. Amazing.
It is Kids Under Cover’s mission to provide young people at risk of homelessness the foundations to strengthen their connection to family, community, and education.
