About Campaign

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. The weekend event on 24th (Sat) and 25th September (Sun) brings together an array of local artists and craftspeople. Funds raised will go towards the building of the Adult Disability Home for Autism, the first purpose-built residential home for people with autism.
