How It All Started

In 1999, COPE or the Community Outreach Programme for the Elderly was initiated by the Marine Parade Community Development Council (now known as South East CDC) to meet the needs of the ageing population.

By November 1999, St. Hilda’s Church COPE Team, code-named Love COPE, was formed to love and reach out to the elderly.

In 2002, St. Hilda’s Community Services Centre was established and registered with the Registrar of Societies and the Charities Act. We are also a member with the NCSS Central Fund and attained IPC status in 2002.
