Children's Shelter of Cebu

Giving children a chance

Children's Shelter of Cebu operates four homes for 80-90 abandoned, neglected and abused children in Cebu City, Philippines. CSC has been saving lives since 1979. We not only provide food, shelter and medicine, but also schooling, counseling and relationships that foster healing.

Children arrive at CSC having been separated from their birth family. They are typically malnourished and frightened. We move quickly to treat the multiple medical concerns facing a child raised in extreme poverty.


The children at CSC are provided an education through our Children of Hope School. Often they have not gone to school in years, if at all and require one-on-one tutoring to catch up. Our on-site therapists and counselors help children to work through emotional issues and trauma to promote healing on all levels.


CSC has served over 950 orphaned children since 1979. Approximately 25% of our kids have special needs, ranging from blindness to developmental disabilities. We are committed to taking in these children because many other organizations cannot accept them.


We need your help. Each year, we serve over 90,000 meals, make 600 trips to the doctor, change at least 45,000 diapers and do LOTS of laundry. Our staff in the Philippines is amazing, but it takes a financial donation from you to make all this happen.


We believe in serving well. Charity Navigator has given CSC their highest rating of 4 star five years in a row. Only 7% of non-profits can claim this level of excellence. Likewise, we hold a Gold Seal from GuideStar, and 85% of a donation goes directly into program costs.
