Adolescent Care, Community Service Organisation and Uniting Church

Harrison Community Services came into being in 1994. Previously it was known as Harrison House Youth Services. The name change reflected a broadening of services, to include families as well as young people. Run by the Uniting Church, it was based in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne. In 2000, it became part of UnitingCare Victoria. In 2008, Harrison Community Services changed its name to UnitingCare Harrison.
