Robinson Home was established at Ashfield by the Home Mission Society of the Anglican Diocese of Sydney in the 1970s. It was on the site of the former Milleewa Home, in Ashfield, and replaced the Charlton Boys Home. It appears this home moved to Campbelltown at a later date, where it was run by Charlton Youth Services, part of the Home Mission Society.
