Maverick Archdeacon Robert Hammond, Minister of St Barnabas’ Church, Broadway, established Hammond’s Pioneer Homes during the depths of the Great Depression to provide affordable homes for struggling families. By 1940 Hammondville, on the outskirts of Sydney, had 110 homes, a school, general store, post office and church, and was a nationally recognised model for small-scale land settlement. In the early 1950s the organisation established Hammondville Homes for Senior Citizens, one of Australia’s first integrated facilities for disadvantaged elderly people. Today, HammondCare serves a wide range of people with complex health and aged-care needs, through dementia and aged-care services, palliative care, rehabilitation, and mental health programs.
