Kids Under Cover was established 30 years ago, in 1989 by well-known Melbourne identity, Ken Morgan OAM.The disturbing findings of the Senate National Inquiry into youth homelessness, known as the ‘Burdekin Report’, moved Ken to initially raise funds to build a house for homeless young mothers.  
Ken’s passion to increase the support offered to young people facing homelessness led to the birth of Kids Under Cover.  Due to events in his own life, when he was younger, Ken was determined to fill what he saw was a huge gap in the support offered to young people in the community. 
Kids Under Cover is a not-for-profit organisation which is dedicated to preventing and supporting vulnerable young people between the ages of 12 and 25 years who are either already homeless or at risk of homelessness.
Thank you to Amy-Lou Cowdroy-Ling for a great presentation on the work of Kids Under Cover and the positive impact their programs have on the lives of young people at risk of homelessness!
It was the club's great pleasure to donate $3,000 to support the great work of the Kids Under Cover organisation.
With the support of numerous sponsors Kids Under Cover builds 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, with Kids Under Cover relocating a studio up to four times during its lifetime, to help other families in need.
At present there are 12 either 1 or 2 studios located in the City of Casey.
Kids Under Cover also compliment their support 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 one of their studios, but they also provide this support for siblings living in the main home – helping to break the cycle of poverty and youth disadvantage.
