The Burwood Children's Home, situated in Warrigal Road, was previously known as the Burwood Boys' Home.
From the early 1970s, this institution began to accept girls, hence the name change. Children lived in 'cottage' accommodation. Older boys of working age lived on site in the purpose-built, Kemp Lodge.
The Home began to redirect its operations to the region around Shepparton in the late 1970s. It purchased houses in Shepparton in the early 1980s. Goulburn Valley Family Care was established in 1984. The last child left the Burwood Home in 1986. Around this time, its name changed again, to the Child and Family Care Network.
