The institution started in Madras city has grown and spread to the extended areas, suburbs and the villages of the neighbouring Chengalpattu MGR district.
The steady growth of the Stree Seva Mandir could not have been possible but for several helping hands with apt and timely help of funds, advice and resources.

Programmes are so designed that they cater to the requirements of women and children of all age groups, all educational backgrounds, aptitudes, capabilities and languages, with the difference being that the poor get completely free services and those who can afford, pay a part or the full charges. 

Services consist of hostels, homes for the aged, day care centres, schools, vocational, technical and engineering courses, arts and crafts, programmes non formal and continuing education, on the job training, employment, medical attention cultural and recreational activities.
