New Hope Community Services is a social service agency and a member of the National Council of Social Services. Our goal goes beyond providing temporary shelter to the homeless in Singapore; we want to infuse them with real hope to see their lives changed.
Our work began in 2003 when four homeless men approached Pastor Andrew Khoo (our Founder & CEO) seeking refuge. Deeply moved by a need that had not been met by social services then, Ps Andrew set up the Shelter for Men-in-Crisis, Singapore’s first shelter for homeless male ex-offenders. A year later, New Hope Community Services was born.
Since then, we have steadily expanded to meet the growing needs for temporary shelter in our community. We also recognise that building thriving and resilient families and individuals requires more than just a roof over their heads. As such, we run various services and programmes that help our clients break out of the poverty cycle and achieve long term financial resilience and independence.
