The Family Welfare Agency (FWA), established in 1950 to address the issues of underprivileged families displaced during the post partition period. In 1952, the Agency registered under the Bombay Public Trust Act of 1950 (Reg. No. E-5(Bom). Our journey began by providing community services in the B.D.D chawls, Lower Parel, predominantly a textile mill area in city of Mumbai, Maharashtra.
Over seven decades the organization has evolved from welfare and remedial work towards preventive and developmental approach.
