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

Their main activities are:

  • Adoption: FSC’s adoption program is divided into categories like foster care for children awaiting adoption, adoption promotion, work with prospective adoptive parents, search & rehabilitation of biological parents. FSC believes fostering a child provides him/her an easy transition into the adoptive family. It also promotes adoption by spreading awareness among various stakeholders in the communities.
  • Bal Sangopan Yojana (BSY): BSY is a foster care program with the aim to rehabilitate the child in his own family. 59 families benefitted from this scheme in FY16. FSC also provides nutrition supplements such as soya protein, food grains and pulses to those parents afflicted with HIV and TB.
  • Educational Sponsorship: The Educational Sponsorship Program aims to bring a positive change in the child, its family and society. It was initiated to provide assistance to families who were unable to meet the educational needs of their children. It creates opportunities for children and gives them access to primary and higher secondary education. In FY16, FSC reached out to 548 children. Through networking with school authorities they are working with children in BMC schools at Colaba and Masjid Bundar where they are conducting sessions aimed at self-improvement and growth.
  • Community Intervention: FSC started community intervention in slums of Colaba and Cuffe Parade. The aim is to strengthen families by raising awareness among women and creating a positive environment for children’s holistic development. Inclusive interventions are undertaken to empower families through SHGs, Balwadis, Balmandals, TB projects, adolescent groups, tailoring unit etc. Project Uttan is its outreach program for the community of fisher folk in 4 villages and they implemented Balwadis, school interventions, vocational training for women and helped them avail various benefits under government schemes.
