Singapore After-Care Association (SACA) is a voluntary welfare organisation affiliated with the National Council of Social Service (NCSS) and is also a member of the Community Action For The Rehabilitation Of Ex-Offenders (CARE) Network. We are a key after-care agency providing welfare and rehabilitation services for discharged offenders and their families.Every year, SACA assists over 1,000 clients and their families. However, many more need our help and we need your help to make up the shortfall in funding so that we can reach out to these people and their families.
SACA aims to provide holistic support to ex-offenders and their families through:
CASE MANAGEMENT In hopes of minimizing the cycle of reoffending, individualized case work and counselling services are provided to clients and their families, with the intention of addressing their criminogenic needs.
EDUCATION SUPPORT PROGRAMME (ESP) Course fee subsidies, workshops, and befriending services are available to clients who are interested in furthering their education to achieve their goals.
CALL-IN/WALK-IN CENTRE The Ex-offenders Assistance Scheme (EAS) provides support to ex-offenders who are not involved in any aftercare programmes, and families of ex-offenders.
INITIATIVE FOR INCARCERATED MOTHERS AND CHILDREN (IIMAC) Through home visits by our social workers, case managers, and Volunteer After-Care Officers, the level of care for children of incarcerated mothers is assessed, culminating in first-level intervention and referral to appropriate services.
family-connect @ State Courts Beginning on 22 January 2018, SACA's Volunteer After-Care Officers will be stationed at the State Courts to provide first-hand assistance to families who have witnessed the sentencing of their loved ones. Early intervention will help these families prepare for the challenges they are likely to face, and this is done in hopes that the families will be more receptive towards working on their relationships with the inmates during incarceration, and after their release from prison.
Our Wish List
SACA would like to engage in more outreach and fundraising campaigns in 2018 to spread the word about second chances and reintegration of ex-offenders.
Our namesake annual charity event, Charity Film Preview is held yearly around June/July. It targets to raise at least $150,000 in 2018 to cover deficits in programmes and services. If you could help sponsor movie event venues, that will be very helpful to the Association in terms of covering costs.
It would also be of great help if you could contribute to securing venues from which we can outreach to the public, such as through setting up booths.
