Our Campaign Storyends 07 Mar 2022, 11:59 PM
We want children to understand the importance of giving back and looking after the elderly because when the elderly were young, they put in the hard work to help us progress to where we are today. Without them, we wouldn't be around. While the children at Little Sage cannot visit you in person, we have not forgotten you and are grateful for what you have done for us.
Due to the land lease expiry of their Home at 69 Wan Tho Avenue, they have built a new 5-storey building at 1 Willow Avenue. The capacity will be increased to 150 elderly people. With improved facilities and more elderly people to care for, your donations will go towards helping to maintain their new Home.
About The Charity
A Shelter for needy elderly persons.
Established in Dec. 1958, St. John's Home for Elderly Persons is a Sheltered Home for elderly persons who are ambulant and aged above 60.
Our Mission is to provide shelter and care to meet the physical and spiritual needs of elderly persons who have no home and no children or close relatives with adequate resources to care for them.
The Home is open to all regardless of race or creed.
We are not a government-subvented Home and depend largely on the public's generosity to enable us to continue our work as a Registered Charity.
Since the Home started operations in December 1958, we have been located at our present site at 69 Wan Tho Avenue. In 2015, the Government granted us a fresh 30-year lease on a reduced land area. Concurrently, we also entered into a three-plus-three year tenancy agreement on the land that we are currently occupying.
We are now building a new five-storey building on the 30-year lease land to maximise on the plot ratio of 1.4 prescribed for the land. When we move into the new building, we shall increase our licensed capacity to 150. Construction began in Nov 2018, with target completion in Mar 2021.
We appeal for your support of building a new Home, so our elderly residents will not be displaced. Please donate generously. Thank you.
The Home is a recipient of the President's Award for Philanthropy 2014, the Charity Transparency Award 2019, 2018, Community in Bloom Award 2018, 2016, 2014.
