StreetsYde was established by the YMCA Perth in 1989 and was funded through the Youth Supported Accommodation Program, which was a sub-program of the Commonwealth/State funded Supported Accommodation Assistance Program. It was described then as providing emergency accommodation in the innercity to males and females aged 12-25 years. The maximum stay was three nights in emergency and three weeks in extended accommodation. Throughout the years it has been operating, StreetsYde has had a focus on young people who were homeless and/or in crisis of some kind. Its purpose has been to provide accommodation where young people are safe, and to offer support and referrals to other services.

StreetsYde’s emergency accommodation service closed on 31 March 2014.
