The House of the Good Shepherd received women and girls from the courts, and via voluntary placement. All of the residents agreed to stay for a minimum period of two years.
From 1887, after the establishment of St Magdalen's Retreat in Tempe (described as a 'branch refuge' by Judith Godden), many residents from House of the Good Shepherd in Pitt Street were housed at St Magdalen's.
In 1901, when the House of the Good Shepherd was closed, its residents were transferred to St Magdalen's Retreat.
