Marymount Centre is a social service organisation with a mission to empower lives, restore rights, and uphold dignity for marginalised women and children in Singapore. Established as the social service arm of the Good Shepherd Sisters, Marymount Centre is dedicated to making a positive impact in the lives of those in need. With the vision of "Touching Lives, Building Hope," the organisation offers a range of programs and services to support the most vulnerable members of our community.
At Marymount Centre, three 24-hour residential homes are available for children in need. These homes include Ahuva Good Shepherd—Interim Placement and Assessment Centre, Ahuva Good Shepherd—Small Group Care, and Ahuva Good Shepherd—Children's Home. These homes provide a safe and supportive environment for children to live, grow, and thrive.
In addition to the residential homes for children, Marymount Centre also operates Good Shepherd Student Care, which provides after-school care for students at Marymount Convent School. This service offers a safe and nurturing environment for students to continue their education and development outside of the school day.
For women in need of support, Good Shepherd Centre operates as a 24-hour crisis shelter. This center provides a safe and supportive environment for women and their children who have experienced abuse or are in need of crisis support. The center offers counseling, support, and resources to help women and their families heal and move forward.
