Our History

bishan home
Bishan Home was declared open by then Deputy Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong on 25th September 1999 and started operations the following month. The Home is a joint effort between the Ministry of Community Development, Youth and Sports (MCYS) and the Bible-Presbyterian Welfare Services.

When Bishan Home first started, the Home was registered under the Bible Presbyterian Welfare Services umbrella. In 2007 the Home was registered as a separate Society and obtained Charity and Institution of Public Character (IPC) status in its own right. Bishan Home is also a member of the National Council of Social Services.

From an initial population of slightly over 20 residents, the Home is now near full capacity of 132 residents. In addition to our residential program, the Home also runs a Day Activity Centre (DAC).

The Home introduced its DAC program in 1999 as a social service in response to appeals from desperate parents in the surrounding neighbourhood for such a Program. Initially, the program did not receive any government funding. It was only in 2005 that the Home applied to MCYS to fund both the DAC Program and its expansion. Expansion works to the DAC were completed in 2007 and as at  2012 the DAC has 30 clients.
