About Campaign

CareNights is the first and only programme in Singapore that provides FREE night care for children aged 6 to 14, giving parents a chance for respite, work or training. It aims to support parents who are engaged in shift work, skills upgrading or need to get a second job at night to make ends meet; Single parents in great need of caregiving respite or who are attending night school; Families in transition, such as those undergoing divorce, attending to critically ill family members or similar crises; and Families with monthly income of $4,000 and below, or per capita income of up to $1,000

We are opening a new CareNights centre at Agape Village to support the community in Toa Payoh in Feb 2021. This will be Morning Star's 4th CareNights centre. We need funding support to help us to reach out and to serve more families-in-need.

About the Charity

Morning Star Community Services is a registered charity and Institution of Public Character which aims to enrich and strengthen family relationships in Singapore. By empowering individuals and families, we strive to build vibrant communities that can make a difference to society.

In a world where challenges to harmonious family relationships are increasing in intensity, Morning Star Community Services also provides upstream, preventive and early intervention programmes, counselling services, and family life education workshops which are conducted regularly for the benefit of parents and their children.

We have two initiatives that serve the underprivileged and disadvantaged children - NOVA and CareNights.

NOVA is school-based (our centres are located in the schools) and reaches out to children who are not doing well in school. They tend to come from low-income and multi-stressed families.

CareNights is a free night care programme for children of families in need. The children come to our centres from 6pm to 10pm on weeknights because their parents are unable to look after them at night for various reasons. We provide dinner and structured activities to enhance the children's learning of skills and values.
