Yayasan Sunbeams Home (YSH), a non-governmental, self-supporting multi-racial foundation, is home to displaced, misplaced, abused and neglected children of single-parents. It was the brain-child of a husband and wife team Pastor Alvin Tan and his late wife, Pastor Lucy. It was started in 1995.

From a home of first two half-brothers, the home has grown to 60 plus children, consisting of boys and girls. These children are housed in two double-storey houses, back-to-back, one for the girls and the other for the boys. Our children range from 1 year to 22 years old.

A colourful blend of culture occupies its premises, which include Chinese, Indians and Orang Asli, all looked after by pioneers and 30 others who make up the staff and some volunteers who come by to oversee the children’s studies.

Today, Yayasan Sunbeam has expanded to the following:
60 underprivileged children in Taman Mawar, Cheras, occupying two double-storey corner houses, one for the girls and the other for the boys, another double-storey house and upstairs of the administration office for the boys. 27 underprivileged children in Batang Kali, Ulu Yam, Selangor. 9 underprivileged children in Alor Gajah, Malacca. 24 underprivileged children in Taman Teratai, Cheras, Day Care Centre. Feeding ministry to the Orang Asli groups, 200 poor families, old folks and single parents.
