In 1970, eight women from Ballarat, who worked as Honorary Probation Officers, established a hostel for adolescent girls called Lisa Lodge. In 1976, the Committee established Hayeslee House. In 1994, Lisa Lodge Hostel closed and was replaced by a Family Adolescent Support Team. Hayeslee House, which relocated from Ballarat to Sebastopol in 1977, was renamed Lisa Lodge.
In July 2012 Lisa Lodge merged with Berry Street to strengthen the services being provided in the Grampians Region.
