The Heidelberg Boys' Home was established by the Salvation Army in 1893. It was situated on a small property in Heidelberg.
The Salvation Army received 8 boys from the government reformatory in 1893, the first residents of the Heidelberg institution. The home at Heidelberg was short-lived. In 1897, the Salvation Army went on to establish much larger reformatory institution in Pakenham, the Bayswater Boys' Homes.
