Brief HistoryFunding for this service was originally provided through the Youth Supported Accommodation Program, which was a sub-program of the Commonwealth/State funded Supported Accommodation Assistance Programme (SAAP). From 2009, funding continues to be provided through the National Affordable Housing Agreement (NAHA). [For notes on this program see the section on NAHA/SAAP at the beginning of Signposts].

In 2001 Mission Australia’s funding agreement with the Department described the service as providing crisis and transitional supported accommodation for young people between the ages of 15 and 25 years.
Mission Australia advised in 2004 that young people received short to medium term accommodation.
