Have a look at the first article written about Yorganop 😊
Yorganop Child Care Aboriginal Corporation was given responsibility for child fostering, family tracing and youth work. Yorganop Incorporated under the Commonwealth Aboriginal Councils and Associations Act. Yorganop actively supported the Governments to pass a law that recognised the Aboriginal Placement Principle. Chairman Owen Hansen said it was vital to ensure the proper handling of fostering arrangements for Aboriginal children. Yorganop’s first Board of Management members were all members of the stolen generation. They didn’t want children to leave the care system without a strong sense of identity and belonging.
