Organisation Port Lincoln Family Home (1973 - 1980)
- Care Provider, Family Group Home and Government-run
[Taken from the South Australian guide Finding Your Own Way]
Port Lincoln Family Home was purchased during the 1971-1972 financial year with the aim of establishing another country-based family home. It opened in 1973 and as with other family homes it accommodated a smaller number of children than cottage homes. The Department provided the home to the family home parents rent-free and paid them a subsidy for each child in care. The children attended local schools and lived as close to a 'normal family life' as possible.
