The Turning Point (TTP)
is a non-profit charitable organization initiated on 1 July 1990 and registered with The Registry of Societies on 8 October 1991 and Commissioner of Charities on 27 July 1992.
TTP is an approved Institution of Public Character ( IPC ) and a full member of National Council of Social Services ( NCSS ).
Apart from taking care of drug addicts in the Halfway House, we also accept penal code offenders into our Programme. We run a Rehabilitation Programme which helps every individual to move on from their past life of addiction and crime to move forward with a renewed mindset and confidence.
“ NOT BY MIGHT NOR BY POWER, BUT BY MY SPIRIT”
TTP was birthed in a humble rented single storey bungalow in Meng Suan Road by two wonderful Sisters-in-Christ, Ms Florence Ng and Ms Khew Swee Ling. They sacrificed their careers to take care of homeless women from the streets.
We moved into a fully renovated premise in 341 Jamaica Road in 2004. Penal code offenders have been emplaced in TTP since 2007 under the CBR Work Release Scheme.
Singapore Prison Services ( SPS ) launched the current Halfway House Service Model in October 2010. We thank SPS for their collaboration with TTP.
