Abercare Family Services was formed in 1981. Its name reflects its connection with the Aberfeldie Baptist Church. Abercare was a provider in temporary foster care in the western suburbs from the early 1980s. In 2009, Abercare Family Services changed its name and became known as Baptcare's family services division.
