HOME Shelter is a safe sanctuary for abused and exploited domestic workers who have no way of supporting themselves or a place to stay in Singapore. The shelter provides boarding, lodging, and food during their stay as the domestic workers go through the process of seeking legal recourse or resolving employment or salary-related disputes with their employers. HOME Shelter provides social support, medical assistance, legal assistance and financial assistance to the domestic workers throughout the duration of their case. A case can go on for one month to a year, depending on how long it takes for the investigation to conclude. This holistic approach to support helps with the domestic workers' physical and mental well-being. More than just rehabilitative, the shelter also provides opportunities to residents to improve or learn new skills.

Donate to HOME and help us provide a safe space to the abused and exploited domestic workers in Singapore. The shelter provides its residents with three meals a day and houses an average of 800 residents throughout the year. The annual cost to feed our transitory residents is $50,000. Donate now and help us continue to provide a safe refuge to migrant domestic workers.

About the Charity

HOME (Humanitarian Organisation for Migration Economics) is a charitable organisation with Institution of Public Character status. Since 2004, we have been dedicated to improving the welfare and upholding the rights of migrant workers in Singapore. Migrant workers play a vital role in contributing to Singapore. They take on low-waged jobs as domestic workers or in the construction, marine, manufacturing, service and conservancy sectors. Their work is often dangerous and precarious. We assist migrant workers who suffer abuse and exploitation. Unpaid salaries, excessive working hours, work injuries, physical and psychological abuse are some of the common problems these workers face. Some of them may also be victims of human trafficking. We run a shelter for domestic workers, helpdesks for domestic workers and male migrant workers. We also offer legal assistance, health education and vocational training to the workers. In 2016, over 2,000 migrant workers received assistance from us. And about 2,000 domestic workers have sat through our skills training courses. HOME works with government agencies, civic groups, corporations and other community partners to realise our vision in creating an inclusive society that stands for justice, fairness and equality.
