ART du JOUR by Leiela is proud to support youth charitable organisation Kids Under Cover
Being homeless can happen to anyone.
On any given night, there are more than 105,000 homeless people in Australia and nearly half of these are under the age of 25.*
For more than 24 years, Kids Under Cover has been working to prevent youth homelessness.
We know that if young people are not properly supported when they first experience homelessness, they have a higher chance of becoming homeless in their adult lives. Around 40% of homeless adults were first homeless as young people.**
In our work, we focus on early identification and prevention of youth homelessness, creating a proactive rather than a reactive approach to this very complex issue. We do this by building homes and providing scholarships and mentors for homeless and at-risk young people.
