DaySpring, a programme of HCSA Community Services, runs two centres: DaySpring Residential Treatment Centre and DaySpring New Life Centre.
1. DaySpring Residential Treatment Centre, Singapore’s first small-group residential centre for abused teenage girls, ages 12-16, provides clinical therapies that help them overcome the emotional and psychological trauma of abuse, be it physical, sexual or psychological in nature.
Each resident will engage in a live-in program of 12-18 months followed by a 6-month after-care programme.
While the main purpose of the residential therapeutic treatment programme is to provide therapy and treatment for complex trauma of abuse and help them learn to manage their symptoms and issues, the purpose of the transition programme is to prepare residents to be equipped for reunification with families and/or adjust to independent living.
DaySpring understands that teenage girls who have experienced the trauma of abuse (physical, sexual, emotional or neglect) will struggle with complex emotional and behavioral issues. They aim to provide these hurting girls with a safe and loving environment where they can benefit from proven therapies that cater to their condition.
