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:

Case Referrals

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 info@habitat.org.sg 

If you are referring an unvaccinated homeowner/household, please complete and submit the Waiver of Liability form located in the last page of our Project HomeWorks Referral form. 

 

Unvaccinated homeowners are to comply with ART test requirement within 24 hours prior to the session.

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.
