Sadly, without your help, the doors will close on these children — leaving many of them without care and supervision, and possibly in danger.
Children don’t choose where they live and grow up, they make do with what they have. But sometimes their environment is not as safe as it should be. That’s where Cubbies comes in.
The Cubbies program has been running since 1974. It started as a response to the needs of families living in public housing around Fitzroy. Today, Cubbies continues to provide a much-needed safe space for local children.
Cubbies is a magical place where children can go to play together in a safe environment. It’s a place where they can learn to cook, to play the drums, to dance, to build and make cubby houses. It’s a place where they can come together with children their own age, who have been through the same experiences, to play basketball, table tennis or football, to design art or to simply make each other laugh, just as children should. It’s a place where they can be safe, knowing that the youth workers are there to offer them their support, through any circumstance. This program makes a huge difference to these children’s lives, but they’re at risk of losing it.
Your gift will go directly to keeping the doors of Cubbies open —giving children a safe space to develop life skills, learn about their own culture and just be children.
Children don’t choose where they grow up. But with your help, these children can reach their full potential and stay safe.
Your tax-deductible donation will keep Cubbies open.
