DaySpring was founded in 2006 by Alice Heng, an accountant by training. At that time Alice was battling a rare form of cancer but it did not deter her from starting a counselling centre for women in a rented 4,000-square foot apartment on Cairnhill Road.
Her vision was to provide an easily accessible refuge and oasis of hope and healing for women in need.
Alice believed that an empowered woman will empower others. She longed to see them renewed and equipped to live lives of confidence, purpose and hope, becoming the woman that God destined her to be.
On 28 February 2007, Alice passed away but her courage, passion and dedication has inspired many others to step up to continue with this work.
