How Your Donation Makes a Difference
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 between 2,000 to 2,500 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:
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.
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.
