Family Service Centre

Tonight, I visited one of the family service centres in our island to learn more about its operation.
It was an enriching visit. Prior to the visit and presentation by the staff of the family service centre, I did not have an inkling of what is the operation of family service centres but after the visit, I realised the staff, the counsellors at the family service centres actually play such a criticial role in our society!
The family service centre runs a host of social welfare and education programmes and outreach, targeting the various segments of our people: the children, the youth and the family. Such programmes include martial counselling, youth guidance programs, child management, counselling for the gambling addicts, families troubled by domestic violence, financila woes, etc.
The centre also run tuition, school holiday progranes interest class, lunch time talks for the enrichment of family and children.
Together with the other organizations offering social assistance, family service centres form the bedrock of our social fabric, lending a hand to those in need.
In these economically trying times, more and more families would be affected, the role and importance of our social welfare organizations will be even greater.
