MWS Girls’ Residence

MWS Girls’ Residence is a Children and Young Persons Home supported by the Ministry of Social and Family Development, providing out-of-home residential care for vulnerable young women who have experienced trauma and childhood adverse experiences, and are in need of care and protection.

Our Aims

  • Provide a safe community and environment in line with traumainformed care principles, that is conducive for the care, development and rehabilitation of young women aged 15 to 21 years
  • Engage and empower young women for positive transformation, growth and holistic development

How We Serve

  • Provide a safe home for young women in need
  • Manage rehabilitation of young women in conflict with the law
  • Collaborate with community partners, organisations and individuals to run programmes (e.g. theatre, art, sensory exploration, mindfulness workshops) that empower young women who had experienced trauma, to gently address the issues they face

Our Care Approach

Trauma-informed Care

  • As the majority of the residents have a history of trauma and may have difficulty trusting others, MWS adopts the principles of traumainformed care — such as ensuring our residents’ safety, respecting their boundaries, providing consistent care and jointly making decisions with them — which help improve outcomes
  • Upon admission to the Residence, every resident is given an individualised care plan, supported by a level progression system that enables her to strive towards rehabilitation with rewards

MWS Girls’ Residence is a partnership with Women’s Society of Christian Service (WSCS).
