Lovett Street Family Home


The Lovett Street Family Home, in Rangeville, Toowoomba, was operated by the Presbyterian and Uniting Churches. It opened and was licensed in around 1968. Control was transferred to the Uniting Church on 22 June 1977. In around 2000, the property was sold to Rangeville Uniting Church.

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).
