Gracehaven is a residential home for children and youths who require care, protection and rehabilitation due to risk behaviours and a lack of parental supervision.
We aim to help children and youths reintegrate back into their family and society through an array of holistic programmes and activities specially designed to cater to the well being of each individual person. At Gracehaven, a team of professionally trained social workers work towards building holistic and individualized care plans that are tailored to meet each person’s needs.
Programmes & Services
Counselling and Guidance
We work towards fostering close relationships with those under our care to help them overcome their past and face the future with a positive attitude.
Academic support is provided for those who need additional coaching in their studies as many of them do not have a strong educational foundation due to bad experiences and neglect.
Sports and Outdoor Activities
Sports and recreational activities help to foster leadership and team building amongst our children and youths. We collaborate with external groups to organise activities to enhance their well-being, physical fitness and learning experiences.
Music, Drama and Art
Through music, drama and art, many of our children and youths have discovered their hidden talents and also found joy in expressing their thoughts and feelings.
Parents or guardians are encouraged to continue their responsibilities to care for the children and youths through home-leave periods, outings and visitations. The ultimate goal is to see every person return to their own home and family, changed for the better.
Gracehaven also places strong emphasis on aftercare and follow-up services for the children and youths upon their discharge. We provide ongoing support to them and their families in the transitional period after discharge, and connect them to services within the community to provide the continued support.
In addition to caring for children and youths in the residential home, Gracehaven also runs an Interim Placement and Assessment Centre (IPAC). This temporary care environment will allow children under child protection to be in a safe place while assessment into their needs are undertaken to facilitate their placement in the most appropriate care environment.
Safe and Strong Families - Reunification
This is a pilot project with the Ministry of Social and Family Development that provides home-based intervention to reunify residents with their natural families in a safe and timely manner. Parents are equipped with parenting skills so that they can provide a nurturing environment for their children.
Gracehaven Fostering seeks to provide a safe and secure home for foster children and young persons who are in need of care and protection. Foster families are recruited and supported to provide interim or long term alternative care in a home-based environment for foster children whose parents are unable to care for them. We work closely with the Ministry of Social and Family Development and other agencies to provide support for foster children and their families.
