Charity Transparency Award 2019

St John's Home for Elderly Persons was again awarded the Charity Transparency Award!  This is the second time for our Home, with the first in 2018. 

The award recognises charities that have adopted the highest standards of governance and aims to promote good governance in the charity sector by acknowledging the excellent work of charities, while inspiring others to emulate their best practices.

Our Home

Established in December 1958, St. John's Home for Elderly Persons is a Sheltered Home for elderly persons who are ambulant and aged above 60.

Our Mission is to provide shelter and care to meet the physical and spiritual needs of elderly persons who have no home and no children or close relatives with adequate resources to care for them.

The Home is open to all regardless of race or creed.

Our Residents

Elderly persons admitted to our Home usually face family or financial situations such as:

  • being no longer able to care for themselves due to old age and physical or medical problems;
  • having no immediate family, or having family members who have passed away or who are themselves elderly and are thus no longer able to provide care;
  • having severe conflicts within the family;
  • having financial problems that make commercially operated sheltered homes out of their reach.

The Home's current licensed capacity is 86 elderly Residents.

Urgent Need to Rebuild Our Home

Since the Home started operations in December 1958, we have been located at our present site at 69 Wan Tho Avenue.  In 2015, the Government granted us a fresh 30-year lease which will expire in December 2045, on a reduced land area of 3,300sqm.  Concurrently, we also entered into a three-plus-three year tenancy agreement on the remaining 8,924sqm land area that we are currently occupying.

We are presently constructing a new five-storey building on the 30-year lease land, to maximise on the plot ratio of 1.4 prescribed for the land.  We began construction in November 2018 and when we move into the new building, we shall increase our licensed capacity to 150 elderly persons.

During the past few years, the Home has stepped up our fundraising efforts.  With our limited resources, it has been a huge challenge for us to raise funds for our annual operating expenses by a further $2 million to $3 million per annum as additional funds, for our Building Redevelopment project.  We therefore invite you to please support us, either by volunteering your services or by helping us to raise the required funds.

Tax Deductions on Donations Made

As we are an Institution of a Public Character (IPC), monetary donations to the Home qualify for tax deduction at 2.5 times the amount donated.

We are not a government-subvented Home and depend largely on the public's generosity to enable us to continue our work as a Registered Charity.

"St. John's Home was started as a Home for the destitute and the really poor. We are not a government-subvented Home and depend largely on the public's generosity to enable us to continue our work as a Registered Charity. "
