The Infant Jesus Homes and Children’s Centres (IJHCC) is a registered charity organisation with IPC (Institution of a Public Character) status. We are endorsed by the Catholic Archdiocese of Singapore, a member organisation of Caritas Singapore (CSCC) and National Council of Social Services (NCSS).
The IJHCC serves children and youth from diverse racial groups and religions. A caring environment and support, conducive to balanced growth and personal formation is paramount in helping the children and youth grow in motivation, maturity and confidence, to become positive, independent and responsible adults in the future. In addition, we continue to serve the few elderly ladies that have been with us for many years. For all under our care, we seek your much appreciated support.
The mission and objectives of the IJHCC are to:
a) Provide a caring and supportive environment conducive to the balanced growth and personal formation of children, young persons, and youth at risk, to help them grow into responsible individuals, well-equipped for life, with a capacity to contribute to society
b) Ensure that the Catholic character and charism distinctive of the Infant Jesus Sisters are preserved and developed, while children, young persons, and youth under our care are provided with a holistic education, to assist them in developing their full potential.
