Wimmera Community Care

Details

Wimmera Community Care was founded in 1981 when Wimmera Family Group Homes and Wimmera Emergency Housing amalgamated. It operated family group homes, Residential Care, foster care, Shared Family Care and Adolescent Community Placement in the Wimmera region of Victoria. The organisation changed its name to Wimmera UnitingCare in 2010.

Wimmera Community Care ran two family group homes, one in Horsham and one in Stawell, continuously until 1994. In 1994 the Stawell family group home was closed and the property in Horsham became a Residential Care Unit. In 1985 the organisation commenced its foster care program and in 1988 it added a Shared Family Care programme. Wimmera Community Care’s Adolescent Community Placement programme began in the 1994/95 financial year.
