ABOUT US
HISTORY

In 1998, pioneering the vision to embody the Parable of the Good Samaritan, Grace Assembly of God tasked Pastor Calvin Lee to start and lead the Society with a team of four social workers, in serving and reaching out to people at their point of need. In 1999, REACH Family Service Centre was set up at Blk 187 Bishan Street 13. As our work in the community grew, so did our Society. Today, REACH Community Services Society serves our community through 6 community touchpoints: Family Service Centre@Bishan, Family Service Centre@Sin Ming, Youth Powerhouse@Bukit Batok, Counselling Centre@Shunfu, Senior Centre@Jalan Membina and Senior Centre@Bukit Gombak Vista.
