Starting from 1989, Caritas Family Service began to provide service to residents of the Tai Po and North district. With the accumulated experience in counseling and family education, we were committed to become an Integrated Family Service Centre (IFSC) by the Social Welfare Department (SWD) in March 2005 and changed our center name to “Caritas Integrated Family Service Centre – Fanling”. With the joint effort with another “IFSC” run by the SWD, this Centre continues serving the residents in Fanling.
Under the direction of “Child-centered, family-focused and community-based”, we aim to enable individuals and families to utilize their internal strengths. We also make use of community resources to strengthen their abilities to face adversity. We promote mutual help spirit so that families could effectively cope with family problems and challenges.
