MWS Lauded with National Award for Work with Rough Sleepers Amid COVID-19

In recognition of MWS Family Service Centres’ (FSCs) work in providing casework to rough sleepers during the pandemic in 2020, MWS was honoured with the President’s Certificate of Commendation (COVID-19) on 18 June 2023. 

MWS was one of several organisations who participated in The Innkeeper’s Project to house homeless individuals during the circuit breaker period. Our FSCs’ main role was in providing case management services to the rough sleepers at Buangkok Crescent Shelter, as part of holistic client care. 

The team also conducted research with the rough sleepers to uncover the realities of homelessness, and made recommendations to address the issues including the need to build a community support network.
