Lakeside Family Services (Lakeside) is a charity and an Institution of a Public Character (IPC) that has faithfully served vulnerable members of society for the past 25 years, regardless of race or religion. We run 2 Family Service Centres, 2 Student Care Centres, 1 centre for families affected by incarceration and problem gambling, and 1 residential care centre for women with unsupported pregnancies. Lakeside’s portfolio expands this year with 1 Children and Youth Centre and 1 Senior Wellness Centre.
Annually, with support from sponsors and volunteers, Lakeside helps an average of 7,000 beneficiaries:
2,500 distressed individuals and families with financial woes, domestic violence, family conflict and other crises have been offered counselling and resources.
700 needy children from disadvantaged families have been offered student care, reading intervention, creative arts, and meaningful holiday programmes.
1000 at-risk and underprivileged youths, are guided to better navigate life challenges and express themselves in healthy ways and develop their leadership potential.
300 seniors, including the lonely and frail, to help them stay active and well-supported through wellness programmes, educational workshops, and volunteering projects.
2,500 inmates, ex-inmates, and affected family members are assisted in mending strained family ties through video conferencing, communication workshops, tuition, and support groups.
200 problem gamblers and their families receive counselling support to overcome gambling addiction and restore family relationships.
50 ladies with unsupported pregnancies, to help them carry their babies to full-term and provide them emotional and residential care where necessary.
We need your help!
With this Charity Gala, we aim to raise $650,000 for our programmes. We appeal to you for your support by sponsoring a table or making a donation. Your generous giving is greatly appreciated! Thank you very much.
