Master Builders Association of Victoria presents the Kids Under Cover Cubby House Challenge that will bring the building industry together to design, build and donate cubby houses.
The 2011 Cubby House Village is on show at the Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show at Carlton Gardens from March 30 to April 3.
Supporting Kids Under Cover is Incolink as a gold partner of the event for the second year in a row.
Incolink has been a Gold Partner of Kids Under Cover for four years, and a Kids Under Cover supporter for several years.
John Glasson, Incolink CEO and Executive Director says that the Kids Under Cover program reaches out to many young people who just need a hand up rather than a hand out.
The Kids Under Cover Cubby House Challenge will see some of Victoria’s premier builders donate cubby houses as part of the challenge.
Some of the contributors to the Cubby House program include Good Constructions, Nixon Tulloch Fortey, Vaughan Constructions, Ortech Industries, Synthesis Design and Harris HMC.
The designer cubby houses are anticipated to be sold for more than $5,000 each, raising much needed funding towards the ever-growing waiting list for studios across the state.
Kids Under Cover is a not-for-profit organisation that supports young people who find themselves at risk of becoming homeless due to changed circumstances in the family home.
The Kids Under Cover Bungalow program aims to keep homeless and at-risk young people connected with their families.
The studios have one or two bedrooms with an ensuite and they are placed on the grounds of the family or guardian/carer’s home.
Kids Under Cover Chief Executive Officer, Jo Swift says that the program has been a successful solution to house young people and has already seen the installation of many studios across Victoria, with over 450 projects to date.
