HOME (Humanitarian Organization for Migration Economics) is a Singapore-based charity founded in 2004. HOME is dedicated to empowering and supporting low-wage migrant workers who find themselves victims of human rights violations and suffer abuse and exploitation. Our work focuses on advocacy, welfare and empowerment and is aimed at creating an inclusive society which upholds the principles of equality and non-discrimination.

We provide immediate crisis intervention as well as long-term support such as education and training programmes to achieve our goal of enhancing the well-being and future economic prospects of migrant workers. HOME also seeks to promote the diverse voices of migrant workers in Singapore through outreach projects, and public education on issues affecting them.



HOME operates a number of specialised helpdesks for domestic workers seeking assistance. Our team of trained caseworkers and volunteers offer advice to workers unsure of their rights and options. Additionally, HOME can assist with managing the end-to-end process of workers’ cases, supporting them to seek recourse, whether that be legal, medical, financial or psychological.


HOME offers a place of refuge and social support for all vulnerable migrant domestic workers in Singapore. Many of our residents have suffered abuse and exploitation, and a number are in the process of seeking legal recourse or resolving disputes with their employers. With space for around 60 workers at any one time, the shelter residents may stay for periods of a few days to over a year, depending on the speed in which their cases are concluded. In many instances, HOME’s shelter is their only place of sanctuary at a time when many have no way to support themselves, nor anywhere to stay in Singapore during their period of crisis. We seek to restore their dignity through holistic rehabilitation programmes and provide a variety of activities and services, from English classes to counselling sessions.

Medical Treatment 

HOME offers subsidised dental services and outpatient treatment for our shelter residents.

Legal Aid

HOME provides free legal aid for workers in Singapore and continues to assist them in return to their country of origin.


HOME Academy 

With the aim of empowering migrant domestic workers in Singapore, HOME Academy offers a variety of educational and vocational training programmes. Courses include English language, computer literacy, cooking, cosmetology, baking, caregiving, dressmaking, and financial literacy. Many of our courses are run by volunteer domestic workers with specialised skills and a passion for empowering others.


HOME is a leading proponent of migrant workers’ rights in Singapore and aims to increase awareness of their situation through public education and campaigns on issues affecting the migrant worker population. Through our advocacy work, we hope to help bring about changes to improve the lives of migrant workers in Singapore.

HOME seeks to gain greater insight into the lives of migrant workers and the issues that affect them, and we carry out research projects into the employment and living conditions of migrant workers in Singapore.
