Montfort Care journeys with families through life stages across the life span. Over the years, Montfort Care has evolved from a family service centre to a wide spectrum of community-centric services spanning family, child protection and eldercare, to ground-up initiatives, anti-violence and social advocacy.
It all began in 2000, with the inception of Marine Parade Family Service Centre, which provides a safe and welcoming space where individuals and families can be guided, supported and helped. Supporting seniors is a natural continuum of services to families. Montfort Care goes beyond supporting and caring to proactively empowering seniors for deeper, positive social impact.
Our eldercare arm comprises both GoodLife! and YAH! (Young-At-Heart) which is dedicated to providing transformative eldercare services. GoodLife! focuses on creating communities for seniors and a holistic approach to active ageing, while YAH! promotes a positive mindset towards ageing and empowers seniors to be community contributors.
Today, Montfort Care is a network of programmes committed to improving the lives of families, children and seniors facing transitional challenges:

Every year, Caritas Singapore assesses the needs of its member organisations to fund programmes that serve our brothers and sisters in need. Our grant allocation takes into consideration funding gaps for underserved needs, the social mission organisation’s funding priorities, and the effectiveness and measurable impact of the charity’s programmes and services. All grant distribution decisions are announced in our annual report.
