Family Care was founded in 1998, registered with the Ministry of Justice of Armenia as a non-government humanitarian organisation (NGO), and based in the capital Yerevan. During its first four years of operation (1998 -2002), it received grants and private donations totalling US$2,800,000 for the implementation of its programmes, which were primarily concerned with the health sector but also with cultural issues and economic development.

  Family Care has worked in partnership with International organisations including UNICEF, UNDP, Save the Children US and Catholic Relief Services in the design and implementation of projects by providing specialist expertise in the area of healthcare. Family Care has also worked in collaboration with SCF US who were managers of a USAID umbrella grant in Nagorno Karabagh. Family Care has collaborated with Gemelli University Hospital in Rome and Stoke Maternity Hospital in UK, through which have been organized short term clinical visits of obstetricians /gynecologists coming from maternity hospitals in Armenia and Karabagh.

  Locally Family Care has worked in collaboration with the Republican Center of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Perinatology in Yerevan, the first and third Pediatric hospital in Yerevan, Erebuni Women's Health Center, the Ministry of Health and the National Health Institute.

  The organization aimed to promote the health and well-being of families living in remote and disadvantaged areas of Armenia and Nagorno Karabagh. The general strategy employed was to provide comprehensive and integrated programs extending from third level hospitals to the primary health care facility level. Activities included the rehabilitation, furnishing and equipping of hospitals and health facilities, the provision of ongoing technical and material assistance and the strengthening of health management and organizational systems. Training and professional development of local health personnel and health education for the population were key activities in each program.

  In 2007 Family Care Foundation was founded under the direction of Antonio Montalto   with the objective of continuing the useful activity aimed at the economic and cultural development of Armenia.
