Shine A Light is the theme of the Beacons of New Hope fundraising campaign this year. We chose this theme because in our work, we shine a light on the path out of homelessness for our homeless friends so they can see there's hope ahead!
Homelessness exists in Singapore.
In 2019, a study by the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy found that there were around 1,000 street homeless people in our nation. There are also other forms of homelessness:
Some stay in inadequate or temporary housing.
Homelessness can negatively impact one’s wellbeing, livelihood and relationships, and weaken one’s sense of worth and identity.
Others live in constant risk of losing their homes due to family conflict, loss of income or health problems.
Our Mission is to Give Them HOPE
Homelessness is a complex issue. But armed with a community of dedicated volunteers, partners and supporters, we believe we can uplift the displaced and disadvantaged among us. Together, we can emerge stronger.
What We Do
At New Hope Community Services, our goal goes beyond providing temporary shelter to those we serve; we strive to infuse them with real hope to see their lives changed.
