Community Partners: Project HomeWorks
Habitat for Humanity Singapore works regularly with local community partners like Senior Activity Centres (SACs), cluster support, Family Service Centres (FSCs), hospitals and social workers to run Project HomeWorks, our intensive home-cleaning programme.
To ensure that Project HomeWorks is able to serve those who are most in need of help effectively with a long-term impact, we only take on cases that have been referred to us through official channels from our community partners.
To better assist you, please select an option that best applies to you:

For cases involving hoarding issues and/or persons with mental disabilities, we will require the client’s social worker/case manager/counsellor to be onsite during the sessions.
We only accept case referrals for Project HomeWorks from official sources:
Government agencies - Ministry of Social and Family Development, Agency for Integrated Care etc.
Cluster support and Senior Activity Centres
Social workers from Family Service Centres, Social Service Offices etc.
Medical social workers from public hospitals, community hospitals etc.
If you're from any of these agencies and have a client you'd like to refer to us, please download and fill up this Referral Form via the button below & email it to firstname.lastname@example.org
To prevent delay to the referral process, please ensure your form is fully completed.
What Happens Next?
Upon receiving your partnership request or referral form, our team will -
Step 1: Reach out to conduct an Initial Assessment
Step 2: Conduct a joint home visit to make a detailed assessment of the household and their needs
Step 3: Confirm session date/time and the list of works required
Step 4: Execute the Project HomeWorks session(s) on the actual date(s)
Step 5: Conduct a post-session debrief to update on outcome and any necessary follow-up required.
This process spans across 4 to 6 weeks depending on our case load.
Due to the high volume of case referrals and intense manpower/ logistics needed, we seek your understanding that priority is given to the most urgent cases first, usually those with pest infestations as that can quickly worsen over time. For less urgent cases, we may need to keep them on hold until we have more case(s) in the area to be combined into a multiple-home Project HomeWorks session.
