Crossroads west, the Salvation Army's administration body for youth residential and support programs, was officially launched on 4 June 1991 to administer its child and youth services programs in Western Australia. It was located on the site of the Hollywood Children's Village, adjacent to the Salvation Army's Senior Citizens Village. An article written in 1992 reported that elderly residents helped children at Crossroads west with their schoolwork. At that stage, Crossroads west ran short-term 'intensive, activity-oriented' residential programs on the Nedlands campus, in two houses in Mirrabooka, and one in Joondanna, staffed with professional youth workers . Many of the teenagers referred to Crossroads west at this time had been involved with the youth justice system.
