MWS Girls’ Residence

WHAT WE DO

MWS Girls’ Residence provides the residents with a safe and conducive environment for emotional, social, and psychological development. We aim to create transformation and positive changes in their behaviour through a holistic and therapeutic framework.

We rehabilitate young females, aged between 15 and 21 years old. They may be mandated by the Court to serve out their probation in a residential facility, referred by the Ministry of Social and Family Development or other Social Service Organisations.

 

Our services:

Interventions are structured around the Social & Emotional Learning (SEL) framework.

Individualised Counselling

  • Each resident is partnered with a staff member who will journey with them through their stay, and for 6 months after graduating
  • Each resident is also paired with a female mentor to guide and nurture them as they work through their challenges
  • The desired outcomes for each girl are emotional and psychological healing, equipping them with effective conflict resolution and better decision making skills

Compassionate and Motivational Environment

  • We provide them with a safe environment where positive conduct is affirmed, a fair disciplinary system is in place, and consistent nurturing is provided

Character-building and Emotional Learning Activities

  • Counselling and other opportunities for character building
  • Climbing trips to build resilience to overcome challenges
  • Reflect upon these activities, personalise the experience and internalise the learning points

Re-integrating them back to their Families and Community

  • Family counselling sessions and bonding activities are conducted every month to ease the girls’ return to their families
  • We follow up with the girls for 6 months after their graduation to ensure a smooth transition back into the community
  • We also have a 6-month post-graduation programme to ensure a smooth transition back into the community
