God’s faithfulness to the ministry enabled VOH to open 3 Home Cares in Laguna and Sarangani, where children are transitioned to sheltered lives, led to the Lord and provided with a caring, loving and secure home environment. Our 2 Home Cares in Puypuy and Magdalena, Laguna are safe havens for abandoned and neglected children, for orphans and for children rescued from the streets. Our Home Care in Malungon, Sarangani is a second home for children from the B’laan and Tagakaolo tribes.
With God’s provision, each home care has been blessed with facilities and services to meet the basic needs of every child. Children are able to eat a full meal three times a day, have access to medical assistance through our home clinic and have a deeper understanding and relationship with God through morning group devotions, fellowships and spiritual activities. They are provided basic education and other learning opportunities such as afterschool, entrepreneurial, sports and leadership programs. They have a family they can call their own through the men and women who serves as vessels of God’s love 24/7. Our houseparents teach them basic life skills while the social workers walk with them in their journey through personal or group facilitation, counseling and focus group discussion and provide them with assistance in getting birth certificates when needed. We also have in-house professional teachers who guide them in their studies and tap their potentials by providing them different platforms to share their gifts. From a life of brokenness and despair, the children admitted in our care experience healing, wholeness and transformation and a renewed hope of being reunited with their families in the near future.
