Our Campaign Storyends 30 Nov 2020, 11:59 PM
Our team consists of Social Workers, Counselors and Office Administrators from Lakeside.
We have decided to participate in "A Million Steps" fundraising campaign as we would like to play a part in giving hope and bring healing to family members of those who have been incarcerated. We see many families where young children and aged parents are left without a breadwinner when their loved ones are imprisoned.
We believe this is a worthwhile cause. And so our Family Service Centre (Jurong West) is taking part in this "A Million Steps" fundraising campaign, regardless of how little some of us may like exercise.
We invite you to join us. Your small act of support will help give the incarcerated new hope and sunshine again.
A Million Steps raises funds for Lakeside Family Services' work serving (ex-)inmates and their families.
We aim to inspire hope, reconnect families, and support them in their journey to reintegration.
Lakeside provides a wide range of services, including the Family Resource Centre, a one-stop centre for prisoners and their families, which is based at Changi Prison Link Centre.
We also provide Case Management Support for those who are on the Work Release Scheme, as well as life skills workshops through our Release Preparation Programme.
In addition, Lakeside provides Televisit services for families to visit their loved ones in prison through our teleconferencing facility, as well as holistic programmes for financial assistance, family bonding, and casework support after they are released.
While some of these programmes are funded by Singapore Prisons Services, other value-added services still require fundraising support to provide for the needs of ex-inmates and their families.
Staff, volunteers & friends of Lakeside will attempt to walk A Million Steps to raise $280,000.
