In the 1980s, the Church of England Boys' Society established the Community Services Foundation Youth Welfare Trust, as a means of attracting donations to support the work at Ruthven Hostel, and another hostel, Molloy House (Anglican Diocese of Melbourne, p.15).
It would seem that Ruthven Hostel continued to operate until around 1983 (Anglican Diocese of Melbourne, p.14).
