About Us

Established in 1902, Children's Aid Society is amongst Singapore's oldest, secular philanthropic organisations supporting disadvantaged children, youth, and families.

Through Children's Aid Society's two services, Melrose Home (503 Clementi Road) and Melrose Care (Blk 557, #01-63, Woodlands Drive 53), the Society aims to provide a holistic range of residential care, specialized therapy, and psychological services to support and empower the most vulnerable in our community through their challenges of adverse family circumstances, family violence, and child neglect.

Our Programmes

Residential Care
We provide safety, security, and support to our residents in a homely setting, whilst ensuring that their needs are met and their interests protected.

Personal Development
We believe that every child should have the opportunities to learn, explore and develop passions in life. Melrose Home supports our residents in their intellectual, emotional, and social development through a wide range of learning support, enrichment activities and character building programmes.

Case Work & Counselling
Individual Care Plans are tailored for each resident and managed by our Social and Case Workers. Casework intervention, therapeutic services and counselling support are provided to address the various behavioural, social and emotional needs of our residents

Family & Community Partnership
Melrose Home collaborates with our residents' families, schools and community agencies on issues affecting their school work and overall well being, with the objective of eventually returning them to their families, when their home circumstances have improved.

Aftercare & Mentoring
Melrose Home offers an aftercare programme that encompasses home visits and in-community support to ensure successful reintegration. The aftercare programme lasts for a period of 6 months to 2 years
