FSC is a non- profit, secular and unbiased organization; small seed of which was sown in 1955 by a group of women with a philanthropic perspective to assist women and children in difficult situations. It was given a professional approach by our Founder Director, Dr. (Ms.) Armaity Desai in 1961 by bringing it under the aegis of College of Social Work, Nirmala Niketan. Today it has blossomed into a full grown tree which is committed to provide support and empowerment to the underprivileged sections of society.
“Empowering the family, the core unit of society,
by creating an enabling and supportive environment,
providing counseling and developing positive Human values.”
 The Journey: Family Service Centre
Recipient of ‘Ahilyadevi Holkar Award’
Recognizing contribution and achievements in the field of Women & Child Development
     Accredited by Credibility Alliance, for good      governance and transparency in work.
