Muhammadiyah Welfare Home is a residential shelter that cares for boys between the ages of 10 to 18 years old who have been admitted under the Care and Protection Orders, Compassionate Grounds or are sent by other agencies such as the Court and the Ministry of Social & Family Development (MSF). It provides a holistic care for each resident through education, programmes, casework intervention and behaviour modification tools.
MWH takes a holistic and multi-agency approach in managing cases of at-risk children and youths who have been referred to the Home. We work closely with various government and other community agencies such as schools, medical professionals, family service centres and community development councils. The safety and well-being of the child and youths is our upmost priority and with careful assessment, individualised plans and targeted interventions are put in place for each admission.
Our case workers support the children and youths in ways such as strengthening their socio-emotional development, developing their level of resilience and improving their education either through formal schooling and/or informal tutoring. We also work towards improving their family relationship to ensure a smooth reintegration upon their eventual discharge from the Home.
