Supporting Singapore’s vulnerable communities impacted by COVID-19

SafeSleep@Home

When the circuit breaker was implemented, protecting people living on the streets became a priority. SafeSleep@Home stepped in with a $417,000 grant to AMKFSC Community Services, Good News Community Services, Methodist Welfare Services and New Hope Community Services to provide immediate shelter for 333 rough sleepers.

The individuals and families received daily necessities and food supplies while efforts were stepped up to help them obtain long-term permanent housing. As of December 2020, the agencies managed to transit 10% of them into long-term permanent housing, while the rest continued to be supported through the transition period.
