Since December 1958, we have been providing shelter and care for needy and homeless elderly persons regardless of race or creed.

Our current land lease expires in December 2015, and has been given three years plus another three years extension. After which we will construct a new building on a smaller plot of land, for another 30-years lease. The estimated construction cost is $12 million.

Besides the estimated $12 million construction cost for the new building, the Home also be paying monthly rental of $13,505 to the Land Transport Authority with effect from January 2016.

As a small charity with limited resources, we rely on public donations to raise the funds needed for its day-to-day operations and the new building project.

Your donation will go towards our Building Fund so that we can continue our legacy of caring for the elderly, providing a clean and safe environment where they can age in comfort and dignity.

About the Charity

A Shelter for needy elderly persons.

Established in Dec. 1958, St. John's Home for Elderly Persons is a Sheltered Home for elderly persons who are ambulant and aged above 60.

Our Mission is to provide shelter and care to meet the physical and spiritual needs of elderly persons who have no home and no children or close relatives with adequate resources to care for them.
The Home is open to all regardless of race or creed.

We are not a government-subvented Home and depend largely on the public's generosity to enable us to continue our work as a Registered Charity.

Since the Home started operations in December 1958, we have been located at our present site at 69 Wan Tho Avenue. In 2015, the Government granted us a fresh 30-year lease on a reduced land area. Concurrently, we also entered into a three-plus-three year tenancy agreement on the land that we are currently occupying.

We are now building a new five-storey building on the 30-year lease land to maximise on the plot ratio of 1.4 prescribed for the land. When we move into the new building, we shall increase our licensed capacity to 150. Construction began in Nov 2018, with target completion in Mar 2021.

We appeal for your support of building a new Home, so our elderly residents will not be displaced. Please donate generously. Thank you.

The Home is a recipient of the President's Award for Philanthropy 2014, the Charity Transparency Award 2019, 2018, Community in Bloom Award 2018, 2016, 2014.
