Dates of existence


In 1901, the Children's Aid Society of Victoria was incorporated and the first home was established on Fern Street. A succession of homes were managed until 1933, when the homes were condemned. At that time, the Society began placing children in foster homes. In 1947, the Children's Aid Society was renamed the Family and Children's Service, and operated until 1973, when the organization was absorbed by the Department of Human Resources.
