The Langford Youth Accommodation Service began around 1986 and by 1991 was receiving funding from the Youth Supported Accommodation Program, which was a sub-program of the Commonwealth/State funded Supported Accommodation Assistance Programme (SAAP). The service was run by a private management committee, and had a hostel at 32 Ravenhill Road, Thornlie.
In 1995, the service was described as providing medium-term accommodation and support for up to four young people at a time, to help them transition from homelessness and crisis to more permanent accommodation and lifestyle stability.
The service had closed by 2001.
