Mission: We exist to glorify God by demonstrating His love to the Philippines as we provide a loving, Christ-centered home with comprehensive medical, educational and placement services for homeless Filipino children. The Children''s Shelter of Cebu began in 1979 when a group of recent college graduates started a residential foster care program in Cebu City, Philippines. It has since developed into one of the Philippines'' top child-caring institutions. On average, 75-80 children are in CSC''s care. 60% of CSC''s children are adopted into Western nations. The Children of Hope School was created to address the unique educational needs of abandoned, neglected and abused children who, we pray, will one day continue their education elsewhere because of adoption. The program is specialized for children of varying ages and levels of educational background. If a child is unable to be adopted, CSC eventually moves them to the Wally Johnson Teen Home, where they can attend a school in the city and be prepared for mainstream Filipino life. CSC operates the Teen Home like the residential homes on the main campus, with house parents who live on site. CSC''s ministry is not limited to children living with us. If a child is returned to their parents, a social worker maintains regular contact with the family. In some cases, even parents who surrender a child to CSC are assisted on an ongoing basis. Our social workers keep in close contact with hospitals, police and community members so we are called if a child appears to be abandoned.

I have had the privledge of serving on the Board of CSC for the past 6 years. Further I have been able to visit CSC on several occasions and can without any hesitation recommed them. The Board, Staff and Volunteers all have a genuine heart to serve God in the lives of the children and people of the Philippines.
