Hangout for the Homeless

It’s back changemakers! COVID19 won’t stop us from helping others. Although we can’t run our hands-on volunteering session, our Hangout for the Homeless sleep rough event will be going ahead.

Here at KiP, we don’t think it’s right that there are Australian youths without a safe and secure place to sleep at night. So, every year, we come together as a community to empower change and this event is called Hangout for the Homeless.

The Hangout sleep rough event is where we ask you to give up your bed for the night to raise money and awareness for youth homelessness in Australia. 

Participants can be as adventurous and creative as they feel. Perhaps a tent in the backyard or some cardboard on the floor… all we ask is that people get into the spirit of things and raise awareness and funds for the children and families who do not have a safe and secure place to sleep at night. Register to sleep rough here ($5 per person).

This year, all monies raised will be donated to Kids Under Cover.

To make sure we are still coming together as a community, we will be running an online Hangout for the Homeless session for everybody that registers. This will include interactive activities, education on homelessness, and a guest speaker from Kids Under Cover.

Let’s join together to help those in need virtually this year and help KUC make sure that this health pandemic does not turn into a homelessness pandemic.

We can do this!!
