Daybreak Family Service Centre (DFSC) has been serving families in the Yishun community since 2000. In FY2014/15, DFSC connected with 2,504 beneficiaries, up from 2,075 in the previous year.

 

CONNECTING TO THE YISHUN COMMUNITY

DFSC collaborates with community partners such as Social Service Office (SSO), schools and other Voluntary Welfare Organisations (VWOs) to reach out to needy or vulnerable families.

INNOVATIVE DEBT MANAGEMENT PROGRAMME PILOT

DFSC participated in the pilot of the Family Development Programme (FDP). Developed by MWS, the programme provided dollar for dollar matching of debts cleared by beneficiaries.

自2000年起,晨光家庭服务中心一直为义顺社区的弱势家庭提供服务。2014/15财年里,晨光家庭服务中心连结2,504个家庭,比前一年的2,075个显著增多。

连结社区

晨光家庭服务中心向社区伸出援手,通过各种计划来帮助夫妇、家庭和贫困儿童,配合西北社里会、忠邦选区办公室和义安理工学院的合作,从而造福受益人和社区双方。

革新债务管理计划试点活动

晨光家庭服务中心参于了家庭发展计划(FDP)的试点活动。这项计划由卫理福利服务开发,旨在以一元对一元的等额方式来协助受益人清还债务。

A Grandparents’ Sacrifice

In their advanced years, Mdm Tan* and her husband were thrust into parenting for their 3 young grandchildren when their parents divorced and left the children behind. To make ends meet, the old couple had to work odd jobs.

DFSC stepped in and linked the family up with various community resources to help them cope. They obtained financial assistance for the children and food rations.

One of the children was placed on the MWS Tutoring Programme and achieved better grades. The children were also engaged in many children’s programmes such as camps, workshops and excursions during the school holidays. These provided not only meaningful and positive memories but also met crucial social and developmental needs.

Today, the grandparents feel more empowered in their caregiving role as they know that help is always around the corner. They remain hopeful of the eventual return of the children’s parents.
