Child and Family Service Philippines was founded in 1987 by Daniel Urquico, Patti Lyons and Consuelo Alger. It was their dream to provide care and assistance to abused and disadvantaged children, women and families in the Philippines. This vision became a reality when Child and Family Service Philippines (CFSPI) was registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in October of 1987 as a non-stock, non-profit corporation. It received its formal charter from SEC on April 1988 and acquired a formal opinion as a tax exempt organization that same year.
It began its programs and services by offering drop-in and residential services to the street children of Baguio and Benguet, beginning first quarter of 1988. It eventually shifted to abused children and women, when DSWD opened its own services in Trinidad. It also focuses on children and youth in conflict with the law, and early childhood development and care. For over 25 years, more
than a thousand disadvantaged children and countless families have availed
of the programs and services of CFSPI. They received professional care and assistance in overcoming the trauma of child abuse, manage problems brought about by juvenile delinquency, learn how to effectively care for their new born babies, deal with dysfunctional family relationships and effectively reintegrate back into family and/or community.
CFSPI is a social service and development agency dedicated towards (1) the promotion of rights of children in especially difficult situations, and (2) the empowerment of disadvantaged women and families. Its purpose is to work towards the prevention and reduction of child abuse, neglect and exploitation. It utilizes an effective CARING, HEALING, AND TEACHING FRAMEWORK, developed with the help of Dr. Danilo Ponce, a Filipino psychiatrist based in Honolulu. It allows the organization, its board and its staff to focus on important achievable and measurable goals. Its programs and services cover the City of Baguio, the Province of Benguet, six municipalities in the Ilocos Region, and the Municipality of Naguilian, La Union. In addition it shares its social technologies, learning and knowledge through the Center for Leadership to many other provinces in CAR and Central Luzon.
