「慈光社群服務網絡」成立至今,從不間斷地連結學校、機構和政府部門,於社區提供創新多元服務,關顧弱勢社群。以下為活動舉隅︰

本機構起源於九龍城區。1998年開始,本機構聯同九龍城區內的基督教團體於聖誕期間合辦嘉年華會及探訪。2001年至2007年間,活動更獲社會福利署九龍城區福利辦事處協辦,在地區推行預防性宣傳與外展服務,以及進行支援性的小組及探訪。

2001年,我們第一次在龍城區內的舊樓進行「愛心洗樓梯」(2005年也在深水埗區進行),隨後十年更逐家探訪住戶、商鋪及街市檔攤,表達關心、發現居民的需要後,作出適切的回應。

2003年沙士後,我們更獲社會福利署九龍城區福利辦事處邀請參加全港關懷行動,為區內二千七百多位長者清潔家居,而「土瓜灣十三街恩慈服事計劃」就是以外展形式,服事體弱長者及獨居二老家庭,時間長達半年,好讓他們重獲自信與尊嚴。同時,我們建立了家庭暴力緊急通知機制及四個支援小組。

2004年,為樂善堂小學的外牆「抹塵添彩」,為區內鐵閘塗上美麗圖案。

2005年,我們開展了派麵包的關懷行動,每晚走遍龍城社區,將麵包逐一分給街頭露宿者、拾荒者和獨居老人。2007年,每晚10時後,更獲一茶餐廳免費供應湯水,提供予有需要的街坊享用。及後,我們繼續關懷行動,讓社區有需要的人在中心內免費食粥、在星期日派湯給露宿者、拾荒者和獨居長者。

2005年,於九龍城廣場及附近公園接觸長者,為他們做簡單體檢。

2007年至2010年,我們在啟德道50號地下成立區內首間自資營運的「龍城家庭睦鄰中心」,提供兒童、長者、坊眾興趣班、免費醫療諮詢、足部保健、緊急支援服務,並建立支援小組。

2008年,社會福利署九龍城及油尖旺區福利辦事處於當年12月出版的「義軍崛起」一書中,本機構被認可為他們的「衛星服務站」,協助他們及早識別困難或需特別支援個案,再轉介予主流服務單位跟進。書中有多個篇章介紹並讚賞我們於社區所提供的服務,亦曾邀請我們的負責人及服務對象與業界分享工作心得及成效。

自2008年初起,安老事務委員會和勞工及福利局邀請我們參加「左鄰右里–積極樂頤年試驗計劃」及「左鄰右里–社區關愛長者試驗計劃」,並撥出十五萬元贊助費。

2008年亦與區內的溥仁學校合作,開辦功課輔導班,獲家長和校方讚賞。此外,我們聯同學校、機構,參與社署舉辦的「家庭和諧、社區共融計劃之泰港融合除隔膜、親子共聚增歡樂」、「你我齊來展風采之親情風采」。

2009年開始,逢星期三在九龍城街市對開的空地舉行「親墟」,同年也在深水埗南昌街公園舉行,內容不單有手工藝、量血壓、唱歌表演,更會準備羅漢果水派給街坊,為的是在社區散發關愛及歡樂的氣氛。

2011年,在寨城公園的六藝台舉辦「藝墟」,與坊眾「Circle Painting」。

2005年,我們還獲Victory Favour Limited資助三十三萬元,向社會福利署成功申請第一輪的「攜手扶弱基金」,以開拓關懷弱勢社群的「師徒共創成長路」計劃。為居於九龍城及鄰近地區的低收入或綜援家庭的家長提供510項家長技能訓練,每項技能訓練會有8次外出實習機會;為這些家庭的少年及兒童提供140個興趣班,包括繪畫、創作設計、電腦、結他等。

2014年啓晴邨鎗擊案發生後直至現在,我們持續為啓晴邨及德朗邨的居民提供各項活動,協助他們適應新的居住環境,並建立支援網絡,營造和諧、關愛的社區氣氛。

Since its establishment, TKCSL has been linking schools, institutions and government departments to provide innovative and diverse services to the community and to care for the disadvantaged. Here are some examples︰

TKCSL was originated in the Kowloon City District. Since 1998, TKCSL has teamed up with Christian groups in the Kowloon City District to organise carnivals and visits during Christmas. Between 2001 and 2007, the event was co-organised by the Social Welfare Department's Kowloon City Welfare Office to conduct preventive publicity and outreach services in the district, as well as support groups and home visits.

In 2001, we conducted the "Washing Stairs for Love" in the old buildings in Kowloon City District (expanded to Sham Shui Po District in 2005). In the following ten years, we visited families, shops and market stalls in the community to express our care and responded to their needs appropriately.

After the SARS outbreak in 2003, we were invited by the Social Welfare Department's Kowloon City District Welfare Office to participate in the territory-wide caring campaign to clean the houses for more than 2,700 elderly people in the district. We also organized "Tau Kau Wan 13th Street Merciful Service Scheme", which is an outreach service, serving the frail and the singleton and couple elderlies for six months, so that they can regain their self-confidence and dignity. At the same time, we have established an alert mechanism for domestic violence and four support groups.

In 2004, we painted the exterior walls of Lok Sin Tong Primary School and the iron gates in the district with beautiful patterns.

In 2005, we went to the Kowloon City community every night to give bread to homeless, scavengers and elderly people living alone. In 2007, after 10 pm every night, a restaurant provided us with soup for the needy free of charge. After that, we continued to take care of the people in need in the community with free congees inside our centre. We also send soup to homeless, scavengers and elders on Sundays.

In 2005, we conducted some simple medical examinations for the elderly at Kowloon City Plaza and nearby parks

From 2007 to 2010, we established the first self-financed in the district, called "Kowloon City Family Neighbourhood Centre" (龍城家庭睦鄰中心) at No. 50, Kai Tak Road to provide interest classes for children, elderly, and neighbours in the community, free medical advice, foot care, emergency support services, and support groups.

In 2008, we were recognized by the Social Welfare Department's Kowloon City and Yau Tsim Mong District Social Welfare Office (KC/YTMDSWO) as their "Satellite Service Station" (衛星服務站) in their published Chinese book, namely, 《「義軍」崛起》(The meaning in English is the rising army of volunteers.) in helping them identify cases requiring special support early at the district level and refer them to the mainstream service units for follow-up. Our services were introduced and appreciated in the book. Our staff and clients were also invited to share our work and achievements with the industry.

Since early 2008, we had been invited to participate in the "Neighbourhood Active Ageing Pilot Project" and "Pilot Neighbourhood Active Ageing Project - Caring for Elders" by the Labour and Welfare Bureau and the Elderly Commission with a $150,000 sponsorship fee.

In 2008, we also collaborated with the Po Yan Oblate Primary School in the district to offer homework tutoring classes for their students. The classes were greatly appreciated by the parents and the school.

Since 2009, we had organized Carnival (親墟) outside the Kowloon City Wet Market to bring love and joy to the community. There are handicrafts workshop, blood pressure measurement, singing performances, and free Arhat fruit drinks to the neighbourhood. We had also organized Carnival at the Nam Cheong Street Sitting-out Area later that year.

In 2011, we organized "Art Carnival" (藝墟) at the Six Arts Terrace in the Kowloon Walled City Park. We led the community members to do the "Circle Painting"

In 2005, we received a $330,000 grant from Victory Favour Limited to apply for the first round of the "Partnership Fund for the Disadvantaged" via Social Welfare Department to develop a "Journey with Mentor" (師徒共創成長路) programme for the disadvantaged group. Providing 510 parental skills training for parents of low-income or CSSA families living in Kowloon City and adjacent areas, each of which will have 8 internship opportunities; 140 interest classes for teenagers and children of these families, including painting, creative design, computer, guitar, etc.

After the Kai Ching Estate Shooting Incident in 2014, we have been organizing activities for the residents of Kai Ching Estate and Tak Long Estate to help them adapt to the new living environment and establish a support network for a harmonious and caring community.
