What We Do
We have run for more than 20 years the Star Shelter, the only secular shelter for women in Singapore. It is a safe space for women and children who are survivors of family violence.
Apart from providing them with accommodation, clothing, and food, we also cater to their emotional needs with therapy and educational programmes. We have helped more than 2,000 women and children rebuild their lives, and we are looking to expand our services
Maintenance Support Central provides support and legal assistance to women who have difficulties getting spousal and/or child maintenance payments. Each year we help some 800 clients claim the funds they are entitled to.
Our Legal Clinics provide free legal advice to more than 100 women a year who grapple with family law issues such as divorce, custody, and the need for personal protection order to protect them and their children from violence.
SHECARES@SCWO is Singapore’s first one-stop support centre for victims or survivors of online harms, launched in collaboration with SHE (SG Her Empowerment). The centre provides holistic victim support and a safe space for victims and survivors, particularly girls and women, to turn to when they encounter online harms.
Project Awesome brings the inspiring stories of the awesome women in the Singapore Women’s Hall of Fame to school children with lesson plans, interactive workshops, and talks and exhibitions. These teaching resources are made available to all schools, madrasahs, and childrens’ homes.
