In 1970 Fr. Leslie Miranda Parish Priest of St. Francis Xavier Church Kanjur Marg, which is situated in the north of Mumbai invited Helpers of Mary to work among the poor and needy in the villages and slums. In the initial days the sisters traveled daily from Andheri to visit the people and care for their needs. Later a small room was offered to the sisters at Kanjur Marg.

Presently sisters are involved in Educational and Social. They run Day care centre and coaching classes for poor children. Regular family visits are done in the area.
