In 1992 Caresouth founder, Jim McEwan, attended a town meeting regarding the impending closure of the only youth shelter in Nowra. He was shocked to find himself conscripted to the new management committee faced with the task of saving the refuge. About the same time Jim had agreed to help set up Aunties & Uncles within the Shoalhaven. He subsequently orchestrated the amalgamation of the two services resulting in the formation of Shoalcare, later to be called Caresouth.
