The Children's Homes Files is a series of lever-arch files and photograph albums that include documents, photographs, newspaper articles and correspondence relating to children's Homes run by the Salvation Army in WA. There are no personal records held in this series but there are many photographs and photocopied images of children.
Access to these files can be requested through the Salvation Army Historical Records Department. Most of these files are open and do not contain personal information about children.
These records were held by the Salvation Army Heritage Museum in Western Australia. When the Museum closed in 2022, they were transferred to the Salvation Army Historical Records Department.
The collection contains the following files. While the full range of years covered by the records is listed, there may be gaps and missing years within these ranges. The names listed below are the titles used on the files:
