The orphanage has separate sections for babies, young girls, and older girls who are attending college. Shraddhanand Mahilashram is involved in their entire upbringing, school, college, and even marriage, in care the girls want to get married. The old age home is in Vasai, and has both paying and non-paying beneficiaries. Bal Gruha houses the smallest kids, Adhar Gruha houses the older girls and there is an old age home for women above 60.

Shraddhanand Mahilashram runs an old age home for women in distress in Maharashtra. Women above 60 years of age are either referred by volunteers or sent by their relatives for admissions into the old-age home. Many times they also apply themselves for admission into the old age home. A basic medical test including blood tests, x-ray, urine routine etc is done to assess their health at admission. They are registered using a photo and an identity proof at the time of admission. The old age home has all the facilities required for peaceful living of the resident women. There are dormitories and bathrooms on each floor for the use of the residents. Every senior has their own bed, cupboard space to keep their belongings. There is a common room with a television which the residents can watch at leisure. There is a dining hall for all meals. There is a garden outside, in the complex. There are nurses on duty, and a doctor visits daily. The home also celebrates popular events and festivals to keep the spirit of the women. Out of the 56 residents, 31 women live in the ashram are underprivileged and offered free shelter. Donations to this program help in covering the daily food and provision requirements for the elderly women staying at the Shraddhanand Mahilashram home in Vasai. When you donate to this program, you help destitute elderly women with access to a quality and nutritious food for underprivileged senior citizens.
