How Your Donation Makes a Difference
Our welfare programmes emphasise on the importance of education among our child-residents to ensure they do not miss the opportunity for a better future. We do the same with other residents by helping them to cultivate a sense of purpose and self-respect by providing them the opportunities to learn a trade/skill useful to them when they leave the rehabilitation centers.We receive per capital funding from the relevant authority up to 60% of our expenditures. The remaining 40% are made out through public donations and our own self-help fund raising projects.We have helped more than 800 poor and needy families, 800 children, 6000 troubled teenagers and girls in moral danger, 200 senior citizens and 2100 recovering drug addicts. The extent and varied nature of our activities is well explained in their numbers.
Today, there is a two-fold increase in the number of people seeking our assistance. New problems have also emerged. Some of these are retrenched parents with children in schools. There is also a growing need to tackle youth delinquency and elderly care. Times may be bad but we should not neglect them altogether. We need your support to continue these services.Our Homes and Centres: Childrens Home located at 993B Kovan Road Centre for Women and Girls located at 42 Surin Avenue Halfway House at No. 50 Lorong 34 Geylang Road Senior Citizen Fellowship Home at Blk 222 Lorong 8 Toa Payoh Welfare Trust Fund located at Joo Chiat ComplexWe depend on the community for support and work in tandem with the larger community to help our clients improve and succeed.
