Intervention Therapy Programmes

Our Campaign Storyends 17 Jun 2017, 12 AM
We are a group of seven students who want to give back to society by helping children that come from difficult backgrounds. As such, we decided to partner with Canossaville Children and Community Services, an organisation focused on helping children with issues at home by providing them with emotional and psychological support using promotional and preventive approaches.
There are children in Singapore who are facing difficult family situations. You can help them by donating to the funding for intervention therapy programmes organised for them in Canossaville Children. 8-10 therapy sessions can cost from 100 dollars all the way to 300 for each individual child, so every cent donated counts. With the funding, they will be able to go through intervention therapy such as animal-assisted therapy, art therapy and play therapy which will help them to diminish anxiety and depression, feel calmer and develop the confidence to express bottled emotions. These are just some of the many benefits of intervention therapy.
All these things will allow the children of Canossaville Children and Community Services to develop new found confidence and express themselves outwardly. Donate today to contribute to a child's wellbeing!

Founded in 1941, Canossaville Children's Home (CCH) offers residential care to girls aged between 6 years to 12 years who come from family situations which may put them at risk. Our Special Student Care Centre offers before/after school care for boys and girls, including those with special needs; with priority for the most needy.
In view of the changing social landscape, the new name of Canossaville Children and Community Services will be adopted to serve the larger community in MacPherson/ Aljunied. There are plans to expand our Student Care Centre, as well as start an Inclusive Childcare Centre to cater mainstream and Special Needs children from the community. We also aim to ultimately include a specialist team consisting of speech therapist, educational psychologist, social workers etc. called "Canossian Circle of Care" to provide additional professional help required by the children and families within the Canossian Eduplex and community.
2017 is our transitional year. Operations for the new centres will begin in 2018.
