McAuley House was established by the Sisters of Mercy in 1942 (Catherine McAuley founded the Order in Ireland in 1831).
The Sisters saw the need for an institution for former residents of their orphanages to live when working in Melbourne. McAuley House had accommodation for 15 young women.
The hostel was closed and the property sold in 1965.
We do not currently have any records linked to this organisation, but records may exist. The Find & Connect Support Service can help people who lived in orphanages and children's institutions look for their records.
