Centacare Catholic Family Services was formerly known as the Catholic Social Service Bureau. The name change, to reflect the organisation's 'commitment to families' was announced by Catholic Archbishop of Melbourne George Pell in December 1998. The Department of Human Services funds Centacare's Adoption and Permanent Care Service, which incorporates an information service about previous adoptions.
