The Daughters of Charity are an international community of Catholic women which arrived in Sydney in 1926. The Australian Province of the Daughters of Charity later expanded beyond New South Wales, to regions including South Australia. The activities of the Daughters of Charity focus on serving and supporting the marginalised and disadvantaged. The Daughters of Charity ran St Joseph's Refuge, Fullarton between 1963 and 1992. In 2020 the Australian and British provinces of the Daughters of Charity of St Vincent de Paul merged to form the Province of Rosalie Rendu.
