The Home for Mothers with Infants, Croydon opened on 11 November 1909. It was one of a number of homes opened by the State Children's Relief Board under the Infant Life Protection Act of 1904. Such homes were intended to keep unmarried mothers and their babies together and reduce the infant mortality that resulted when babies were unable to be fed by their own mothers.
