Youth Accommodation Support Services (YASS)


The Youth Accommodation Support Service (YASS) supports young people living in Perth who are homeless or at risk of homelessness by providing crisis accommodation for 15-18 year olds, and transitional accommodation to young people aged 16-25 for up to 12 months in two transitional on-site units. Young people may then be referred to longer term-accommodation.
YASS provides 24-hour care and case management, presenting an opportunity for clients to address their homelessness, mental health, alcohol and other drug, relationships, education and employment and build independent living skills.
