TOUCH Community Services
MissionCalled to serve
the needy and disadvantaged,
we value every person and enable them to strengthen families
– the foundation of society
TOUCH Community Services is a not-for-profit charitable
organisation. We were officially registered in 1992 and have been a
member of the National Council of Social Service since 1994.
The work of TOUCH started in 1986 as a service for latch-key children in the neighbourhoods of Clementi and Jurong. Touched by the obvious need of low-income and single-parent families with difficulties making ends meet, much less raising their children in a positive environment, a group of 7 volunteers in their 20s organised activities to help the children. This small attempt has today become a multi-service organisation with an integrated network of 17 services, 14 centres and 23 children's clubs located at different parts of Singapore, including Bukit Merah, Clementi, Geylang Bahru, Hougang, Serangoon, Toa Payoh, Ubi and Yishun.
How we started
Who we serveOver the last 25 years, TOUCH has reached out to many individuals from all religions and races, including children, youths, families, people with special and healthcare needs and the elderly.
To promote greater awareness and exposure to overseas community work, we also partner closely with organisations in various countries in the areas of adoption of children, community development and humanitarian relief.
