ANG MO KIO FAMILY SERVICE CENTRE
- February 1978 saw the establishment of the Ang Mo Kio Social Service Centre, the first one-stop centre in Singapore providing social services for everyone in the family – from the children to the grandparents. The idea had been mooted by Singapore Council of Social Service deputy director, Dr S Vasoo. Three agencies affiliated to the council, namely the Asian Women’s Welfare Association, Anglican Welfare Council and Young Men’s Christian Association, came together to provide these services. It was also SCSS’ first attempt in getting three agencies to collaborate. Many people have since come to appreciate its formation.
- In March 1984, the centre was registered as an autonomous organisation under the Societies Act with its first independent volunteer management committee chaired by Mrs Jaya Anand. In 1995, it was renamed the Ang Mo Kio Family Service Centre (AMKFSC). Today, the numerous family service centres all over Singapore are fashioned after the model first developed at Ang Mo Kio over 30 years ago.
