are neglected by their parents or are victims of drug abuse. The girls are referred by street educators from ChildHope Asia (Philippines) Foundation, Sun for all Children (SFAC) and Families and Children for Empowerment and Development (FCED), and government organizations. Upon admission, they are assessed by the center to determine their needs. This includes a look into their school records and their medical history. A case manager will work with the child to implement a case management plan where the child is actively involved in gauging her progress. Together with the houseparent on duty and the social workers, areas for improvement are identified and properly addressed. They are provided with initial services such as food, clothing, a hygiene kit, and their own beds. THE CHT FRAMEWORK To help girls overcome their traumatic experiences and rebuild their lives, the center saw the need for an integrated approach that took into account their social, emotional, and spiritual growth. 30 All of their projects and activities follow the Caring, Healing, and Teaching framework to make sure that girls have a holistic development during their stay. Caring The houseparents provide the girls with their daily needs and teach them basic life skills. From monitoring the girls’ hygiene to giving them daily chores, they are training the girls to become responsible adults. It is their hope that once they reintegrate themselves in the outside world, the girls can learn to become independent. As acting parents, the social workers become role models and they make up for the parental care that the girls were deprived of. Thus, it is not only the provision of material needs that is important to their task, but also the guidance, the laughter, and care that biological parents would give. Healing Healing is a priority for the social workers at Tahanan Sta. Luisa.

An initial assessment is conducted on girls who step into the center to determine any infections they may have acquired while scouring the streets. During their stay, psychiatric and psychological services are provided, especially for girls who have gone through drug abuse. Individual or group counseling twice a month can have a huge impact on the way these girls perceive the people around them. They can determine their own personality and understand how best to adapt to different people. They will know how to resolve personal problems which they previously found overwhelming. Most importantly, they will learn how to trust again. Healing is not only about visiting doctors; it is also about rebuilding one’s self-worth and character. Through various cultural and recreational activities such as music and sports, they develop skills such as perseverance and teamwork. Teaching The center enrolls the girls in an alternative learning system where they learn about reading, basic math, values education, gender sensitivity, and sexuality. This is an important step for girls who missed out on primary education. They also learn skills that can help them earn money once they leave the center. Short-term courses are offered by volunteers and partner organizations. These can include voice lessons, arts and crafts, dancing, t-shirt painting, soap making, and teambuilding exercises. For those who are having difficulties with the alternative learning system, Tahanan Sta. Luisa arranges tutorial sessions. It is a policy of the center to use praise and positive reinforcement to manage their behavior. Nonviolent methods of reprimanding ensure that the girls are not reminded of their abusive pas ΠΈQ‘₯́‘…́ݽɭ••™™•Ρ₯Ω•±δ)½Ω•ΘΡ‘”ε•…ΙΜ°Ν‘½έ₯Ήœ₯΅ΑΙ½Ω•)Ν•±˜΅•ΝΡ••΄…Ή„½½Α•Ι…Ρ₯Ω”)‰•‘…Ω₯½Θ…΅½ΉœΡ‘”₯Ι±ΜΈ)₯͍‘…ɝ”)=Ή”„‘₯±‘…́‰••Έ‘•Ρ•Ι΅₯Ή•)ΡΌ‰”Ι•…‘䁙½Θ™½Ι΅…°Ν‘½½°½Θ)ΡΌΙ•₯ΉΡ•Ι…Ρ”έ₯Ρ ‘•ΘΙ•±…Ρ₯Ω•Μ°)„ΑΙ”΅‘₯͍‘…ɝ”½Ή™•Ι•Ή”₯Μ)…ΙΙ…Ή•έ‘•Ι”Ρ‘•δ‘₯͍ΥΝ́ё”)₯Ι³ŠéΑΙ½Ι•Ν́…ΉΡ‘”Ρ•Ι΅Μ½˜‘•Θ)Ι•±•…Ν”Έ™Ρ•Ι…Ι”΅½ΉΡ‘±δ™½±±½ά΄)ΥΆ½Θ‘½΅”Ω₯Ν₯Ρ́…Ι”½Ή‘Սѕ)™½ΘΝ₯ΰ΅½ΉΡ‘́…Ή…Ή½Ρ‘•Θ)ΕΥ…ΙΡ•Ι±δΩ₯Ν₯Ё™½ΘΡ‘”Ι•΅…₯Ή₯Ήœ)Ν₯ΰ΅½ΉΡ‘́‰δQ…‘…Ή…ΈMΡ„Έ1Υ₯Ν„)Ν½₯…°έ½Ι­•ΊѼ•ΉΝΥΙ”Ρ‘…Ёё”)₯Ι°₯́₯Έ½½½΅Α…ΉδΈ±½Ν₯Ήœ)ΝΥ΅΅…ΙδΙ•Α½ΙЁ₯́΅…‘”½Ή”Ρ‘”)₯Ι°‘…́͑½έΈΑ½Ν₯Ρ₯Ω”Ν₯ΉΜΈ)=Ή”½˜Ρ‘”ΑΙ½‰±•΅ΜΡ‘”•ΉΡ•Θ)™…•Μ₯́ё”…Ν”½˜₯ɱ́ݑΌ)±•…Ω”έ₯Ρ‘½ΥЁΑ•Ι΅₯ΝΝ₯½ΈΈ=™Ρ•Έ°)Ρ‘•δ…Ι”™½ΥΉΙ•ΡΥΙΉ₯ΉœΡΌΡ‘•₯Θ)½±έ…έ‰•…ΥΝ”Ρ‘•δ…ΉΉ½Π)½Α”έ₯Ρ ‘…Ή”ΑΝ卑½±½₯…±±δΈ)!½ΥΝ•Α…Ι•ΉΡ́…Ή½Ρ‘•Θ‘₯±‘Ι•Έ)‘₯͍ΥΝ́ݑδΡ‘”₯Ή₯‘•ΉΠ‘…ΑΑ•Ή•)…ΉΡΙδΡΌΡ‘₯Ή¬½˜έ…έѼΑΙ•Ω•ΉΠ)₯Ё™Ι½΄‘…ΑΑ•Ή₯Ήœ₯ΈΡ‘”™ΥΡΥΙ”Έ)MΥΝΡ…₯Ή…‰₯±₯Ρδ)Q…‘…Ή…ΈMΡ„1Υ₯Ν„%ΉŒΈ½Α•Ι…Ρ•Μ)ΥΝ₯ΉœΡ‘”‘½Ή…Ρ₯½ΉΜ™Ι½΄­₯Ή)₯Ή‘₯Ω₯‘Υ…±Μ°½Ι…Ή₯ι…Ρ₯½ΉΜ°…Ή)½ΙΑ½Ι…Ρ₯½ΉΜΈ½Ή…Ρ₯½ΉΜ…Έ)½΅”•₯Ρ‘•Θ₯Έ΅½Ή•Ρ…Ι䁙½Ι΄)½Θ₯ΈΡ•Ι΅Μ½˜±½Ρ‘•Μ°™½½‘Μ°)…ΉΡ½₯±•ΡΙ₯•ΜΈQ‘•δΙ•±δ½Έ)‘ΥΉ‘Ι•‘́½˜Ω½±ΥΉΡ••Ί™Ι½΄)½Ρ‘•Θ½Ι…Ή₯ι…Ρ₯½ΉΜΡΌΑΙ½Ω₯‘”)•αΡΙ…ΥΙΙ₯Υ±…ȁΡΙ…₯Ή₯ΉœΡΌΡ‘”₯Ι±ΜΈ) δέ₯‘•Ή₯ΉœΡ‘•₯ȁΉ•Ρέ½Ι¬°Ρ‘”)•ΉΡ•Θ‘½Α•ΜΡΌΝΥΝΡ…₯Έ₯Ρ́ΑΙ½Ι…΄)…ΉΝ•ΙΩ₯•ΜΈ)Ρ‘…Ё‘•Ν•ΊٕѼ‰”Ι•Α±₯…Ρ•‰δ)½Ρ‘•ΘΙ…ΝΝΙ½½Ρ́½Ι…Ή₯ι…Ρ₯½ΉΜ)έ½Ι­₯Ήœ½Έ₯ɱϊd•‘Ս…Ρ₯½ΈΈQ‘₯Μ)•ΉΡ•Θ…­Ή½έ±•‘•ΜΡ‘…ЁͅΩ₯Ήœ)ΝΡΙ••Π‘₯±‘Ι•Έ₯́Ή½ΠΝ₯΅Α±δ)…‰½ΥЁ₯Ω₯ΉœΡ‘•΄Ν½΅”™½Ι΄½˜)•‘Ս…Ρ₯½ΈΈI…Ρ‘•Θ°₯Ё‘…́Ѽ‰”„)½΅ΑΙ•‘•ΉΝ₯Ω”…ΑΑΙ½… Ρ‘…Π)Ρ…­±•ΜΡ‘”Ι½½Π…Ύ͕½˜Ρ‘•₯Θ)½Ή‘₯Ρ₯½ΈΈ)Q‘”ΑΙ½‰±•΄½˜₯ɱϊdΙ₯‘Ρ́…Ή)•‘Ս…Ρ₯½Έ₯́Ή½Π©ΥΝЁ„ΑΙ½‰±•΄Ρ‘…Π)…™™•Ρ́₯Ι±ΜΈ%Ё…™™•Ρ́•Ω•Ιε½Ή”Έ)Q‘ΥΜ°έ”΅ΥΝЁ‰”ΑΙ½…Ρ₯Ω”₯Έ)™₯Ή‘₯ΉœΝ½±ΥΡ₯½ΉΜΡΌΡ‘₯́Ι₯Ν₯ΜΈ δ)•‘Ս…Ρ₯ΉœΡ‘•΄…ΉΑΙ½Ω₯‘₯Ήœ)Ρ‘•΄έ₯Ρ „ΝΡΙ½ΉœΝΥΑΑ½ΙЁΝεΝΡ•΄)έ”ΝΡΙ•ΉΡ‘•Έ½Υȁ½΅΅ΥΉ₯Ρ₯•Μ°)™…΅₯±₯•Μ°Ι•…Ρ”©½‰Μ°…ΉΑΙ½Ρ•Π)½Υȁ•ΉΩ₯Ι½Ή΅•ΉΠΈ%Έ™…Π°…½Ι‘₯Ήœ)ΡΌΡ‘” Ι½½­₯ΉΜ%ΉΝΡ₯ΡΥΡ₯½Έ°„)₯Ι³Šé•‘Ս…Ρ₯½Έ₯́ё”΅½ΝЁ½ΝΠ΄)•™™•Ρ₯Ω”…Ή‰•ΝЁ₯ΉΩ•ΝΡ΅•ΉΠ)……₯ΉΝЁ±₯΅…Ρ”‘…Ή”Έ$•‘Ό)Ρ‘”‰•±₯•˜½˜AΙ₯΅”5₯Ή₯ΝѕȁΙΉ„)M½±‰•ΙœθƒŠq]‘•Έε½Τ₯ΉΩ•ΝЁ₯Έ„)₯Ι³Šé•‘Ս…Ρ₯½Έ°Ν‘”™••‘́‘•ΙΝ•±˜°)‘•Θ‘₯±‘Ι•Έ°‘•Θ½΅΅ΥΉ₯Ρ䰁…Ή)‘•ΘΉ…Ρ₯½Έ»Št)5½Ω₯Ήœ½Ι݅ɐ)Q‘”έ½Ι¬‰•₯Ήœ‘½Ή”‰δ)Q…‘…Ή…ΈMΡ„Έ1Υ₯Ν„₯́„΅½‘•°)‰½ΥЁё”ΥΡ‘½Θ)-•ΉΠ Υ΅Α₯Ό₯́„₯±₯Α₯ΉΌ‘•΅₯…°•Ή₯Ή••Ι₯ΉœΝΡΥ‘•ΉΠ)έ‘Ό₯́‘•‘₯…Ρ•ΡΌ‘•±Α₯ΉœΑ½½Θ½΅΅ΥΉ₯Ρ₯•ΜΥΝ₯ΉœΝ₯΅Α±”)•Ή₯Ή••Ι₯Ήœ½Ή•ΑΡΜΈ́½Ή”½˜Ρ‘”™½ΥΉ‘₯Ήœ΅•΅‰•ΙΜ)½˜Ή₯Ή••Ί]₯Ρ‘½ΥЁ ½Ι‘•Ί₯±₯΅…Έ°‘”‘…́±•Ρ‘”)½Ι…Ή₯ι…Ρ₯½»Šé ½­…Ν‘€AΙ½©•Π…ΉAΙ½©•Π ₯½‘₯•ΝΡ•ΘΈ!”)•ΉΩ₯Ν₯½ΉΜ…ΈM8½΅΅ΥΉ₯ΡδΡ‘…Ё…Ρ₯Ω•±δ½±±…‰½Ι…ѕ́Ѽ)…‘‘Ι•Ν́ё”Ι•₯½»Šé•ΉΩ₯Ι½Ή΅•ΉΡ…°₯ΝΝΥ•ΜΈ)έέάΉ‘…Ή•΅…œ΅‘₯₯ΉΝ₯‘•ΘΉ½΄ ‘…Ή”5……ι₯Ή”M•ΑΡ•΅‰•Θ€ΘΐΔά(Μ
