In five years' time, about 9,500 adults with autism will outlive their families and require support in their daily living. This is a concern for family members about what will happen to their loved ones with autism when they are no longer able to take care of them.
As parents grow older, they want what all parents want for their children - to see them being able to live meaningfully engaged and happy. At present, we do not have a specialised home catered for adults with autism.
Targeted for completion in 2018, Compassvale Bow Adult Disability Home is the first purpose-built residential facility in Singapore to meet escalating demand. Join us to build them a home today! Double your efforts as your donations will be matched dollar-for-dollar by our kind donor, up to $50,000.
Community Chest, alongside The Local People and Gushcloud are set to take over Esplanade - Theatres on the Bay's latest venue: the Esplanade Annexe Studio, for a celebration of the arts and inclusiveness.

Funds raised will go towards the building of the Adult Disability Home for Autism, the first purpose-built residential home for people with autism.

About The Charity
We are a fund-raising and engagement arm of the National Council of Social Service (NCSS). As such, our role and purpose are aligned with NCSS to ensure that every person has the opportunity to live a life of dignity to his or her fullest potential within our society. We raise funds to support social service organisations so that they can do what they are best at - caring for and serving the less advantaged.
Community Chest was established in 1983 with a simple yet vital mission - to raise funds for the many social service organisations of the nation. It is about raising funds from the community for the community in need.
Social service organisations supported by Community Chest are then able to do what they are best at - providing critical social service programmes to help children with special needs, youths-at-risk, adults with disabilities, frail and lonely elderly, families facing difficulties and persons with mental health issues.
Over the years, we have built an enduring trust and partnership with many organisations, foundations and individuals, enabling and empowering the social service users under our care to lead fulfilling lives.
At the heart of it all is our Patron-in-Chief, President Halimah Yacob, who will be lending her support to our social service organisations.
