As a convenient, one-stop community based centre, Family Support Services has been making a difference to the lives of the less privileged. Besides extending a practical life-line and friendship to the marginalized in the community, we work with many corporate and individual volunteers to organise educational and interactive activities for the elderly and disadvantaged families so that they do not feel forgotten.
