Armadale Youth Accommodation Service opened in 1989 to provide emergency accommodation services for young people, run by an independent management committee which ceased in 2002. It was funded through the Youth Supported Accommodation Program (YSAAP). Some young people may have been referred by child welfare authorities, but self-referrals were possible. It was run by Anglicare (September 2002-October 2003) and by Great Mates from November 2003.
