Great Mates - Armadale Youth Crisis Accommodation began in 2003 to provide crisis and transitional accommodation to local youth who were homeless or at imminent risk of homelessness. It is likely to have closed by 2005.
Great Mates - Armadale Youth Crisis Accommodation began as a funded program of the Commonwealth/State funded Supported Accommodation Assistance Programme (SAAP). It was contracted to the Department for Community Development to deliver crisis and transitional accommodation services to young people aged 15-20 years in the Armadale area after the previous service (Armadale Youth Accommodation) closed.
