St Michael's Children's Home, run by the Sisters of Mercy Parramatta Congregation, was established in the 1960s. It was formerly known as St Michael's Boys' Home. The Home cared for boys and girls aged 5 to 15 years. In the late 1960s and early 1970s, the home evolved into three cottages each with house parents. In 1982 St Michael's Children's Home became St Michael's Family Centre.
