CarePrison

CarePrison aims to inspire hope and empower clients to make lasting, positive changes through reintegration and rehabilitation services. CarePrison supports inmates in their journey to reintegrate into society and break out of destructive behaviour patterns. We also give support to families of the incarcerated to develop resilience and overcome their present challenges in the absence of a loved one.

CarePrison staff are trained in one of these disciplines - Social Work, Psychology and Counselling. Some are also accredited Certified Substance Abuse Therapists.

Testimonies

“As a case manager, my role involves helping my clients regain their sense of self-worth, and rebuild the relationships with their families and community. I enjoy walking closely with these clients that I serve, and see them achieve the goals they want for their lives after release from prison”

Mr Andrew Chern

Case Worker

“My CCSS caseworker helped me to resolve my problem with my mother so I could return home to my family before my release. He also connected me to the relevant agencies for financial, medical equipment for my father, and housing assistance. And he constantly encouraged me not to give up on life when times are hard. I will not let him down and go back to my old ways again.”
