She persuaded Govenor Gipps to let her turn one of the old barracks into a home for the girls then named it "The home for female immigrants." One of the conditions is that she had to sleep in it before the girls, so, she stayed in the rat infested barracks- by herself- for two nights. She set up 'employment agencies' in country centres so that the girls could find jobs. By December 1841 there were agencies set up in Rarramatta, Liverpool and Campbelltown. She also worked to get shelter sheds to be built on the side of the road in the times of the goldfields. After Caroline gave birth to her fifth child, she started her greatest plan of all; "The family colonisation loan society." The society saved up money so that people could travel to Australia.
