Our Story

Established in 1902, Children’s Aid Society is amongst Singapore’s oldest, secular philanthropic organisations supporting disadvantaged children, youth, and families.

Through Children’s Aid Society’s two services, Melrose Home (35 Boon Lay Avenue) and Melrose Care (Blk 557, #01-63, Woodlands Drive 53), the Society aims to provide a holistic range of residential care, specialised therapy, and psychological services to support and empower the most vulnerable in our community through their challenges of adverse family circumstances, family violence, and child neglect.

Our Beginnings

To better meet the changing needs of the community, Melrose Home expanded its capacity to welcome more youths. The Home’s extended Youth Wing was officially opened by Mrs Mary Tan, our then First Lady, on 26 July 2013. Funded and developed by Ascendas GIVES Foundation and its partners, the new wing bolstered our capacity to be able to provide care for a total of 30 youths. The new wing included study and recreation spaces, as well as outdoor facilities to provide a conducive living environment.
