Our Story


Morning Star Community Services is a registered charity and Institution of Public Character (IPC) which aims to enrich and strengthen family relationships in Singapore. By empowering individuals and families, we strive to build vibrant communities that can make a difference to society.

 

Founded in 1999 with our first centre in Lorong Low Koon, we have since expanded to six centres. Services offered by Morning Star Community Services include after-school care services and CareNights, a newly launched initiative which offers temporary caregiving as a respite for parents aspiring to upgrade or are facing difficulties.

 

In a world where challenges to harmonious family relationships are increasing in intensity, Morning Star Community Services also provides upstream, preventive and early intervention programmes, family life education workshops and counselling services.
