Our story

Mission

Family units form the backbone of society and we believe in empowering them to become the strong pillars through our financial, social and emotional support.


Our goal is to equip each member from young aspiring couples to well-experienced grandparents with practical life-skills and knowledge.

 

For this reason, our works centre on providing family life education; financial assistance; befriending and support services, counselling and case management. We also run a senior centre and a few snack and thrift shops in the community to cater to various groups of people from all walks of life.

History

Cornerstone Community Services (UENS96SS0151G) is registered under the Charities Act since 11 June 1997 and is a full member of the National Council of Social Services since 15 September 2003.

 

We are also recognised as an Institutions of Public Character (IPCs) since 2003. We take the responsibility to ensure that we are recognised and supported by the Singapore government, and that we stay accountable to our donors and volunteers.

 

Our organisation relies heavily on volunteerism and charity support from the public.

We believe in continuous improvement in our programmes and services to serve our community better.
