Holland Park Family Group Home


Holland Park Family Group Home opened in 1964. Run by the Presbyterian Church, it was licensed under the Children’s Services Act 1965 on 4 August 1966. It closed in July 1978 and reopened on 2 April 1980. In 2001, it was no longer a licensed residential facility.

A publication from 1968 stated that the purpose of Presbyterian family group homes in Queensland was:

to provide children, bereft of normal family living, with a home environment, controlled by substitute parents. Each home accommodates ten children. Children of all denominations accepted, but they attend Presbyterian worship.

The children are classified into normal family units and natural families of brothers and sisters are kept together. They are assimilated into local schools, churches and other community activities (Social Services Queensland, 1968, p.93).
