Mr. Chew was a former client of Simei Care Centre. For 2 years, he attended the day care program. He cried daily because he felt dejected and helpless. Having no income, he perceived those days as the worst time of his life. Later, Mr. Chew’s counsellor and employment specialist found him a cleaning job. His condition improved and he was subsequently referred to Community Rehabilitation & Support Service (CRSS), for continued rehabilitation and employment skills training. CRSS is a community-based program that provides visitation and day activities for clients living at home.
Now Mr. Chew works at a fast food restaurant. He is proud of his achievements. “Today I’m proud of my achievements. I can pay for my dental services and buy the mobile phone that I like. I can even afford a nice meal of fish & chips when I like. I would like to share this with all members, ‘Do not be afraid of returning to work. People may scold you, but if you are willing to overcome hardship, you’ll succeed.’”

About the Charity

Singapore Anglican Community Services (SACS), is a work produced by FAITH, an endurance nurtured by HOPE, and a labour prompted by LOVE. The early 1950s marked the genesis of SACS, with the setting up of a clinic by Mrs. Francis Thomas, a nurse and the wife of the Principal of St. Andrew's School. The clinic was to serve villagers living in the Potong Pasir area.

In 1967, the Anglican Welfare Council - renamed Singapore Anglican Welfare Council (SAWC) in 1977 - was inaugurated to serve the needs of the community. SAWC was restructured to bring together the other community service arm of the Anglican Church in Singapore, and was renamed Singapore Anglican Community Services (SACS) in 2004.

Presently, SACS is a voluntary welfare organisation and an approved Institution of Public Character. SACS serves the community through our care services in three areas: Psychiatric Services, Senior Services as well as Family and Children Services.
