Shraddhanand Mahilashram started in the year 1927 in memory of Swami Shraddhanandji (Munshiram). Starting as a shelter for women, the now have an old age home in Vasai, the Bal Gruha in Matunga, as well as two hostels.
Their main programmes include an orphanage and an old age home.
The homes have been operational for decades and are run in a traditional set-up. They run a home for girls, as well as boys up to the age of 5, beyond which they are sent to boys' shelters.
The orphanage has separate sections for babies, young girls, and older girls who are attending college.
Shraddhanand Mahilashram is involved in their entire upbringing, school, college, and even marriage, in care the girls want to get married.
The old age home is in Vasai, and has both paying and non-paying beneficiaries.
Bal Gruha houses the smallest kids, Adhar Gruha houses the older girls and there is an old age home for women above 60.
Shraddhanand Mahilashram works with a vision to help create a world free of destitute women and children.
