New Life Community Services (New Life or NLCS) is a social service agency in Singapore. We are passionate about serving the community and mentoring the next generation. We currently operate three childcare centres, three youth hubs, two student care centres as well as conduct character mentoring programmes for children and youths. We provide financial assistance to marginalised families with schooling children and provide casework management and counselling to nip issues of poverty and debts.

Over the years, we have reached out to thousands of individuals from different religions and races, including children, youths and families – with absolutely no strings attached.


Our Vision

We seek to mentor the next generation of youths and children to master life's transitions so they may be able to make a positive contribution to their homes, communities and society.



Our Mission

Love the Community for Christ

OUR CORE VALUES

  • Purpose Focused
  • People Centred
  • Passion Driven
  • Personal Excellence Modelled
  • Prudence Guided

OUR IDENTITY

We are established by and affiliated to Covenant Evangelical Free Church (CEFC). Although we are the social service arm of the church, we are conscious of the religious sensitivities of the community and our activities are non-evangelistic and available to all residents.

See the broken lines in our logo? The word MENTOR is invisibly embedded in it. Mentoring is at the core of what we do.

OUR AFFILIATIONS

We are glad we do not work alone. We synergise with partners in the community such as schools, grassroots, fellow voluntary social service agencies as well as government agencies.
