HOMELESSNESS

LEARNING FORUM 2.0

People, Private and Public Partnership to Address Homelessness

Homelessness is a complex problem and requires the commitment of a broad coalition of partners and the community to journey together with these vulnerable homeless families and children. In order to tackle homelessness effectively, we (People, Public and Private) need to learn and share ideas on how to help our fellow Singaporeans. New Hope Community Services agrees with Minister Ong Ye Kung when he made the call for companies, institutions and schools to “try our best” and come up with ideas on how to help low-income Singaporeans.
