Family Group Homes run by Melbourne Family Care

Details

From 1959 to the 1990s Melbourne Family Care, its predecessor Melbourne Orphanage, and its successor Family Action, ran a number of Family Group Homes across the outer suburbs of Melbourne. The first family group homes were established in 1959 as institutionalised care was phased out. By 1963, 14 family group homes had been established. By 1981 Melbourne Family Care decided to phase down family group homes in Melbourne’s Inner East and Southern suburbs due to oversupply of homes. The exact opening and closing dates for many of these homes are not yet known.
