NGO Profile :
Family Service Centre (FSC) reaches out to families in difficult circumstances through a range of non-institutional and community-based programmes. FSC nurtures individual, family and community empowerment through numerous programmes within four large areas: sponsorship, adoption, foster care and community development. It believes that need-specific intervention should be evolved in response to families at risk. All the programmes revolve around empowerment and development of the family as a unit with the main focus being the child in the family.

Some of their activities are as follows:

  • Adoption: FSCs adoption programme is divided into categories like foster care for children awaiting adoption, adoption promotion, work with prospective adoptive parents, roots search & rehabilitation of biological mothers. FSC believes fostering a child provides him/her an easy transition into the adoptive family. FSC fostered around 32 children during FY14. It also promotes adoption by spreading awareness among various stakeholders in the communities.
  • Bal Sangopan Yojana: This is the state governments foster care programme implemented in 1994 with the aim to rehabilitate the child in his own family. Under this programme, FSC has reached out to 63 families in 2014.
  • Sponsorship: The sponsorship programme was initiated in 1963 to provide assistance to families who were unable to meet the educational needs of their children. The rationale behind the sponsorship programme at FSC is to bring about a change in the child, its family and the community in the process. In FY14, FSC reached out to 583 children through this programme.
  • Community Development: FSC started grassroot community intervention in the slums of Colaba and Cuffe Parade. The aims are to strengthen the families, create a positive environment for childrens holistic development and empower the family by inclusive interventions. FSC seeks to intervene through Balwadis, study classes, Balmandals, adolescent groups & SHGs.
