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.
REACH Community Services Society is a charitable organisation:
To strengthen vulnerable families and individuals by helping them to achieve independence, stability and resilience
To develop and empower youths towards positive self-image and realising their potential
To build enduring marriages for couples to provide a stable environment to nurture the next generation and support persons with mental health issues towards a state of positive well-being
To promote active in-place ageing for seniors and support system for their caregivers
