The Seniors Befriending Services aim to bring hope, love and care to the seniors who are staying in the selected nursing homes and within the community.
Through regular visits, our teams of volunteers seek to befriend and provide a listening ear and practical help to the seniors from the various communities, namely Love & Care (LC) Nursing Home and the Old Airport Road (OAR) community. We also organise meaningful events and activities during the festive seasons such as Chinese New Year, Mother’s Day, Mid-Autumn and Christmas to celebrate with the seniors.
The Food Care Programme was started in March 2013 with the aim of helping needy families who are facing financial difficulties.
Through this programme, the families are able to obtain food and daily necessities at no cost. To date, over 20 needy families have benefitted from this programme. Apart from providing the food pack, the programme also hopes to give additional social and emotional support to them through the volunteers.
The Youth Mentoring programme aims to reach out to youths from underprivileged families or are found to be ‘at-risk’.
It is catered for all students aged from 10 to 18 years old, and to provide the social and emotional mentoring support to them as they journey through their schooling years.
Family Life Education covers workshop topics that are applicable to families, parents, couples, youths and seniors with focus on key values to building a healthy family system.
These programmes aim to impart knowledge and soft skills to children/youth by developing them to become socially responsible adults, and to equip adults/parents with the knowledge to build their marriages, nurture their children effectively and strengthen their family relationships.
The Barn is a volunteer-run thrift shop that sells pre-loved goods like clothing, accessories, household appliances and other miscellaneous items.
It aims to assist the poor and needy in the community by making consumer goods available to them at an affordable cost. All stocks are donated by members of the public, and proceeds that are received from the shop will be channelled to fund the various welfare programmes by Cornerstone Community Services.
The CornerStore is a place where the community gets to rest and connect with one another over refreshments and snacks.
