Baptcare (formerly known as Baptist Community Care) traces its origins back to 1945, when the Victorian Baptist Women’s Association’s fundraising efforts led to the establishment of Strathalan Community, an aged care facility in Macleod. Baptist Community Care became Baptcare in 2006. Baptist Community Care ran Abercare Family Services, which was a temporary care program operating in Melbourne’s western suburbs from 1981.

From around 1967 until around 1986, Baptist Social Services (Children’s Home section) ran a number of family group homes, located in the suburbs of Heathmont and Boronia.
