About Us

Snehalaya Family Service Centre is a not-for-profit NGO that helps families in Mumbai , India . In a mega-city like Mumbai, the stress and strain of living, with problems such as poverty, lack of proper housing, displacement, unemployment and underemployment, socio-cultural differences, marital discord, etc., proves too overwhelming for many individuals and families. Under this stress many individual feel lost, tried beyond their endurance, frustrated and defeated. People can seek help when capacities for responding to the demands of life are strained, when desired growth seems unattainable, when important decisions elude resolution and natural support systems are unavailable or insufficient.
