Glenhaven Family Care, run by the Christian Brethren, replaced Glenhaven Children's Homes in about 1988. It is located in Ulverstone and Launceston. In 2018, Glenhaven provides emergency, respite, and long term accommodation for children and young people in north and north-west Tasmania. It also offers a support service to families.
According to its website, in 2013, Glenhaven Family Care is a 'Christ centred organisation dedicated to keeping families together in a safe environment'. Its mission involves:
Supporting and equipping families within a caring environment, by providing innovative programs, partnership, and advocacy to break the cycle of disadvantage that affects vulnerable children, young people and their families.
The support services take four forms:
1967? - 1988? Glenhaven Children's Home
1988? - Glenhaven Family Care
