The Accommodation Book lists admission and discharge dates of the girls who entered the Ruhamah program between 2 July 1981 and 5 March 1984. It appears that files survive for only five of the girls admitted in this period. Quantity: 1 book. These records are held by BaptistCare.
Former clients are entitled to access their own files and personal information. All other requests for information will be handled on a case-by-case basis.
Information about these records has been taken from a 1998 publication, Connecting Kin. As at March 2015, the Find & Connect web resource has not received confirmation about the whereabouts of these records. It is possible that records relating to 'statutory clients' have been transferred to the Government Records Repository, part of the State Records Authority of New South Wales.
