Rise Above Halfway House

In Collaboration with Singapore Prisons Service

Rise Above hopes to inspire every woman selected to the halfway house programme to overcome their past challenges and draw strength from their struggles to be more confident and resilient.


Rise Above Halfway House was founded in 2021. It is the first secular halfway house for women offenders undergoing community rehabilitation programmes, and is the second all- women residential halfway house in Singapore. It is structured with a range of programmes and interventions to provide a safe and holistic therapeutic space for women residents to rebuild their lives as well as reconnect with family and community.
