Landsdale House has been run by the Salvation Army in the Perth suburb of Landsdale since 1995 as a Group Home for 8 young people aged 12-16 years.
Landsdale House (a residential program for up to eight children aged 12-15 years) and the Wylie Centre (an education unit), which were part of the Salvation Army's Crossroads west, were opened on a 2.6 hectare property in Landsdale on 26 November 1995. Some young people who had previously been accommodated at Hollywood Children's Village were placed at Landsdale House.
