Rehoboth Children's Home has a capacity for a total of 24 children. The Home is now fully operational, serving children from 0 to 8 years old. The children are being cared for in a family style atmosphere, receiving love, nurture and individual attention from their caregivers. A full time social worker has been employed who works diligently on the paperwork process to clear for adoption those children who have been abandoned or legally surrendered by their birth parents.
Since the homes inception in July of 2003, a total of 116 children have come through the doors of Rehoboth. Through intervention, 34 children have been successfully reunited with their birth families.
But sadly, circumstances are such that reunification is not possible in many cases. For these children, the staff of the Rehoboth Sampaloc Ministries actively work to make an alternative plan for their futures through adoption. In this way, 53 children have found new homes domestically in the Philippines and around the world including in Australia, Italy, Spain, Finland, Canada and the United States.
All of the functions and activities of the Rehoboth Children's Home, including fiscal management, are overseen by the Board of Directors of Rehoboth Sampaloc Ministries. The board is comprised of three Philippine nationals, one British expatriate and an American, all having been involved since the ministry began and having a heart for improving the futures of children and families in the Philippines.
