Hayeslee House was established in late 1976, initially as a transition facility for a group of adolescent girls being transferred from Nazareth House, Ballarat, which was closing. It was run by the same committee that managed Lisa Lodge Girls' Hostel.
Hayeslee House accommodated children aged between 11 and 15, of both genders.
Hayeslee House was first established in a house lent to the committee by Ballarat Children's Homes. This temporary location was in Geelong Road. Subsequently, the committee purchased 17 Clarkson Street, Sebastapol and Hayeslee House moved there in May 1977.
It was named after Sister Rita Hayes, the first superintendent of Lisa Lodge Girls' Hostel.
Hayeslee House was renamed 'Lisa Lodge' some time after the closure of the original Lisa Lodge Girls' Hostel, Ballarat, in 1994.
