We envision Homeless Hearts to serve as a platform to inspire fellow volunteers to start their own grounds-up initiatives to serve and befriend any homeless in their own local neighbourhoods, so that one day every homeless person in every neighbourhood in every age group and every background will find full community support to help them reintegrate back into full community again.
Make Singapore a City of Refuge where the community, infrastructure, and policies provide adequate support for those who are displaced / isolated.
To help the homeless re-integrate into community via community-building, temporary aid, advocacy, and local partnerships.
