- Care Provider, Children's Home and Protestant
[Taken from the New South Wales publication Connecting Kin: Guide to Records]
'Buena Vista' children's home was established by the United Protestant Association of New South Wales. By 1953, the UPA had established thirteen children's homes throughout New South Wales. These homes offered care for children who could not, for one reason or another, live at home with their families. Some children stayed for a few days, while others stayed for years. Children came to the homes as babies, young children and teenagers. The UPA cared for more than 3 000 children in these homes.
