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

Established in December 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 of 3,300sqm. Concurrently, we also entered into a three-plus-three year tenancy agreement on the remaining 8,924sqm land area that we are currently occupying.

We are presently constructing a new five-storey building on the 30-year lease land, to maximise on the plot ratio of 1.4 prescribed for the land. We began construction in November 2018 and when we move into the new building, we shall increase our licensed capacity to 150.

We invite you to join us in this exciting journey of building a new Home for the Elderly, so that our Residents will not be displaced.

The Home is a recipient of the President's Award for Philanthropy 2014, and the Charity Transparency Award (2018).
