Geelong Foster Care


Geelong Foster Care was established and run by the Sisters of Mercy in 1974. Geelong Foster Care operated until 1997.

In 1972 and 1973 as policy changed towards shifting to smaller, community-based facilities the Sisters of Mercy purchased six local residences to establish family group homes. By 1975 children still residing at St. Catherine’s Children’s Home were transferred to either family group homes or foster care.
