There are 8 sisters and 8 lay teachers on the staff, six Ayas (helpers), a Speech therapist, a Physiotherapist, a Nurse as the staff.  A doctor comes once in every week to examine their medical needs. 

Boarding:- Considering the request of the public we run four boarding housing for the protection and convenience of girl children and working women.

Social Work Centres: There are two Social Centres which help the women and girl children of the localities to become self-reliant by giving training in tailoring and embroidery. Many unemployed girls are appointed in this centre in different sections like tailoring, flower making, bouquet making. As part of wiping out the habit of using plastic from the society, the students of Sanjoe Prathiksha Bhavan make bags of non-plastic materials. They make wrapers medicine also. Phenol liquid, soap, soap powder, chalk, candles, decoration items etc... are produced and sold from here.

Jail Ministry: In collaboration with JESUS FRATERNITY a group of sisters have ventured into the field of jail ministry. Sisters are animators of the Manjeri and Perinthalmanna unit. Their services include Counselling, prayer services and occasional visit of the jail-inhabitants which is directed to help the convicts be aware of their situation so as to change their lives  we help them financially. It was a heart touching experience when our nursery children performed different cultural programmes for the prisoners on the occasion of Christmas.

Sisters visit the houses of drunkards and counsel them, provide them with chances to participate in the retreats and provide financial help for their de-addiction, medical treatment and rehabilitation.

As a part of Bio-cultivation gardening and rearing of domestic animals is encouraged and the best ones are rewarded on the occasion of province day celebration.
