Initially set up in 1930 by the Sisters of the Good Shepherd, the site of Mt Maria, Mitchelton was made a Home for girls.  It became home to a diverse mixture of girls ranging from orphans to those declared as “uncontrollable” at home, and to others who were intellectually disabled.  Help was largely received from volunteers until the State Government assisted with some much needed funding.

Formerly known as Home of the Good Shepherd and Mt Maria re-education centre for girls.
