The Genesis :

Coimbatore Multi Purpose Social Service Society is the official social service organization of the diocese o Coimbatore. It was established in the year 1966 and was registered as a non-government organization under registration of Societies Act XXI of 1860 with the registration number 109. Its activities in the beginning were more of charitable and the trend continued. In the year 1985, a macro level evaluation was conducted, and as a result the Society resolved to cater to the developmental needs of the women, children, small and marginal farmers, agricultural labourers and the disabled. Thus CMSSS is an organizational response to the social, economic and cultural injustices, widely prevalent in its operational area in the districts of Coimbatore, Erode, Karur of Tamilnadu and Pallakad of Kerala State.

The Nature :

CMSSS has a broad humanitarian outlook by reaching out to the people, irrespective of religion, caste and language. The society was always willing to grow and branch out in to the fresh avenues of interventions.Starting from the Empowerment of rural women through people's organization, now the Society has placed hands on various programmes like economic empowerment of the poor through people's bank rehabilitation of the child labour, school out, street children and the disabled sustainable agriculture and water, land and biomass management. CMSSS also collaborates with the government in the programmes like 'Mahalir Thittam' and other schemes offered to NGOs.
