The Sisterhood began in Warrnambool and moved to Melbourne in 1909. The Presbyterian Church purchased 223 McKean Street North Fitzroy to care for helpless babies and homeless mothers and it continued as a home for mothers and babies until the 1970’s. By 1978 it had ceased to be used as a residential placement for unmarried mothers and their children. Adoption records are held by UnitingCare Connections.
