The Barwon Association for Youth Support and Accommodation (BAYSA) was established in June 1981 to establish and run a regional youth hostel in the Barwon area. BAYSA ran Lismore House and later Wahroonga Hostel. They also operated lead-tenant properties, adolescent foster care programs, programs to assist adolescents who were homeless and other youth service programs. In 2006 BAYSA became Barwon Youth.
