793. The Gordon House group home

The Gordon House group home was a residential foster care facility located in Pennant Hills, Australia. It was closed after a resident aged 15 died. Articles about the death speak of possible rape and a totally un-supervised facility where people could come in unnoticed from the streets.

Later the Uniting Church, which ran the group home decided to close all their group homes due to case showing to the public that they were in a line of business they did not understand properly.

It could not have been fun to be there as a teenager.
