OUR HISTORY

1990s

In the early days, a group of pioneers and volunteers came together with a common purpose to serve 3 groups in Geylang – gambling addicts, street women and abused migrant workers.

2004

The movement birthed forth

One Hope Centre (OHC),

which was founded as a Society.

2005

2010

OHC received Charity status.

The demand for help for problem gamblers grew, and the legalisation of casinos in Singapore drew attention to societal repercussions in the years to come. OHC recognised the need and began to focus on gambling addiction and debt problems.

2013

OHC received Institute of Public Character (IPC) status by the Commissioner of Charities (COC) under the Ministry of Social and Family Development (MSF)

2021

OHC expanded its services to behavioural addictions recovery work.
