The service was incorporated as an independent housing organisation in November 1995, after having run for the first ten years under the auspice of South West Inner Sydney Housing (SWISH) Co-op Ltd.

Since this time the service has continued to offer medium to long term accommodation for young people aged from 16 to 19 years of age and supported exit housing to young people up to 23 years of age via a 24/7 staffed residential facility based in Erskineville, Inner West Sydney.
