To support their institutions, the Sisters of the Good Shepherd ran commercial laundries in which the residents of their Homes worked. This laundry work had attracted controversy since the early 1900s and its legacy has continued to draw criticism in government inquiries in Australia and elsewhere.
In the 1970s, they ran a centre for teenagers (Neuville) which was less 'institutional' in its approach. After 1979, the Sisters no longer ran residential programs in WA, but they have continued to be involved in social justice activities and education in the State.
