Homelessness is a prevalent societal problem that has remained largely invisible until recent efforts to raise awareness on the issue. For close to two decades, New Hope Community Services has been collaborating with ministerial and social service agencies to support the displaced in Singapore and provide a stable roof over their heads.
The issue of homelessness was brought to the forefront with the onslaught of the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020. In response to the increased visibility of the homeless population, The Innkeeper’s Project was started to provide a safe space for more than 300 clients.
Transit Point (TP) @ 1 Spooner was set up in 2021 to continue facilitating the support of these clients via case management, as well as to serve individuals who are at-risk of or are already homeless. The shelter has served more than 160 individuals to date and has a maximum occupancy of 250.
