The beginning: the year and place, foundation day, registration of a charitable trust. The Organization had humble beginnings in a church compound in Bandra in 1981, with three patients in residence, a priest, a doctor & a recovering alcoholic as a role model for recovery and sobriety.

The guiding philosophy is a reflection of the spirit of service and dedication, enshrined in the work of Mother Teresa, who personally blessed our Kolkatta and Vasai centres.. Today, Kripa is at the forefront in facilitating training in Chemical Dependency, Rehabilitation and HIV/AIDS, and offers a broad spectrum of services to the community, facilitating law enforcement agencies, educational institutions and other academic institutions that are involved in Human Services.
