A unique set of cubby houses are on display at Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show.

Five houses have been specially designed and built for a Fundraising event Cubby House Challenge by Kids Under Cover, a NPO to tackle youth homelessness.

 

For young people, couch surfing is more common than street sleeping.

Rob Hosking from Melbourne City Mission’s Frontyard Youth Service points out the underlying housing affordability crisis, and says homelessness can happen to anyone. Frontyard Youth Service is also holding a fundraising event Sleep at the ‘G in May.
