The ABM Hong Kong Swatow Baptist Church Community Service Association (its alias: ABMSBC) was formed on 20th October 2004. ABMSBC is formed to recognize the actual makeup and organization of our agency. American Baptist Mission has a long working relationship with Swatow Baptist Churches. The history of cooperation can be dated back to 1954. Over the years as various Swatow Baptist Churches have been interested in supporting and running various social service programs, the American Baptist Mission has agreed to lend its name and support to facilitate this process. This arrangement has been effective and our services have become well established. The churches feel it would be most appropriate to administer these various programs through a local non-profit agency. The American Baptist Mission agrees. Therefore, ABMSBC has been set up to formally take up all the social and educational services under American Baptist Mission with effect from 1st April 2005.
There have been three different ways we have tended to work together from 1954 to 1982 when we commence to receive government subvention.
1. Social Service work
(a) Relief work with refugees, Noodles Factory
(b) Special programs for youth, elderly and drug addicts
2. Educational Work
(a) Rooftop schools
(c) Financial assistance through the STEP program
