國際社會服務社(國際社)於1924年創立,是一所國際性非政府機構,服務不受政治、種族、宗教或國籍所影響。本社的總秘書處位於瑞士日內瓦,在超過120個國家設有分社、屬系機構及國家聯絡處。

國際社於1958年在本港設立代表辦事處,向身處香港、內地及海外,有需要的兒童及家庭提供跨國社會工作及跨境社會服務,尤其精於服務新來港人士、少數族裔、分隔家庭、尋求庇護者及難民。本社同時亦向本地家庭、兒童,青少年及長者提供多類型的社會服務包括領養、寄養、兒童之家、綜合家庭服務中心、學校社工等,回應社會需要。

國際社於 2004 年開設深水埗(南) 綜合家庭服務中心,於區內紮根多年,深明該區弱勢社群最迫切的需要,也可以對最需要幫助的一群人伸出適切的援手。
