About Us

About Us

In 1998, the Executive Church Board of Grace Assembly of God tasked a team of four social workers to start a social services society. This newly formed society would embody the Parable of the Good Samaritan; to serve and reach out to people at their point of need. In 1999, REACH Family Service Centre was set up at Blk 187 Bishan Street 13. As our work in the community grew, so did our society.

Today, REACH Community Services Society serves the community through our 6 community touchpoints: Family Service Centre @ Bishan, Family Service Centre @ Sin Ming, Youth Powerhouse @ Bukit Batok, Counselling Centre @ Shunfu, Senior Centre @Jalan Membina and Senior Centre @ Bukit Gombak Vista.
