In 1952, their first centre Nirmal Hriday in Kalighat came up - a home for dying destutites, It is open to anyone who needs help and , most significantly, the building has no door.A childeren's home, Shishu bhavan, was opened in 1957 for un-wanted newborn babies. At Titaghar is the home for lepers, where a large number of leprosy patients are attended to by nuns trained especially for this kind of work. Today , there are over more than 600 centres in India and abroad, with more than 10 centres in Kolkata alone. located at 54A, AJC Bose road - 700016 .
