Caritas Rehabilitation Service

The Division began with the establishment of Family Service in 1960. Throughout its first decade, it catered to the changing society and rapid economic development. In the 70s, day nurseries, Children & Youth Centres and Community Development Projects were set up to provide human development social services to rural areas as well as urban housing estates. Services for the Elderly and Rehabilitation Service for the Mentally Handicapped were established in the 80s.

Services are provided by the Division to almost all sectors of the disadvantaged in our community, ranging from pre-school children to the frail elderly as well as to special need groups such as the new arrivals, the unemployed, youth at risk, women, the disabled, mentally ill, and drug addicts. It has also developed services to promote social integration and mutual care.

At present, the Division operates 190 subvented service units and 28 non-subvented service units with staff of 2,700. Of these, one third are multi-discipline professionals, social workers, nurses, teachers, psychologists and various therapists, providing expert services.
