Mission Statement

We exist to glorify God by demonstrating His love to the Philippines as we provide a loving, Christ-centered home with comprehensive medical, educational and placement services for homeless Filipino children. The Children's Shelter of Cebu began in 1979 when a group of recent college graduates started a residential foster care program in Cebu City, Philippines. It has since developed into one of the Philippines' top child-caring institutions. On average, 75-80 children are in CSC's care. 60% of CSC's children are adopted into Western nations. The Children of Hope School was created to address the unique educational needs of abandoned, neglected and abused children who, we pray, will one day continue their education elsewhere because of adoption. The program is specialized for children of varying ages and levels of educational background. If a child is unable to be adopted, CSC eventually moves them to the Wally Johnson Teen Home, where they can attend a school in the city and be prepared for mainstream Filipino life. CSC operates the Teen Home like the residential homes on the main campus, with house parents who live on site. CSC's ministry is not limited to children living with us. If a child is returned to their parents, a social worker maintains regular contact with the family. In some cases, even parents who surrender a child to CSC are assisted on an ongoing basis. Our social workers keep in close contact with hospitals, police and community members so we are called if a child appears to be abandoned.

May 2012)

Mr. Paul Healy

Profile:

Paul Healy, President, was one of the founders of Children's Shelter of Cebu. Mr. Healy has served on a Philippine Task Force for childcare and served as the organizer of the 1997 Global Conference in Cebu City. Mr. Healy is a graduate of Bethel University in St. Paul, MN. He and his wife Marlys are missionaries in Cebu, and have three adopted daughters from the Philippines.

Leadership Statement:

Part of us wants to laugh when we are referred to as the founders of CSC.  If it had been up to us we would have done it wrong. We would not have had enough wisdom, endurance and grace to get this ministry started, much less keep it going strong for all these years. God founded CSC. He found a few willing young people to whom He gave the vision. He provided the smarts, the supporters, the strength, the joy and the ability to bounce back from disappointments and difficulties. CSC was founded on his goodness and mercy, and his love for the broken young lives that have come to live with us since 1979. It has been exciting to be a part of this work through the years. Through economic ups and downs, political turmoil in the Philippines, natural and manmade disasters, and the heartaches that come from working with abused, malnourished and sick children, but also through the joys and the thrills of answered prayers and changed lives, we have been blessed. We have learned over and over again that those who work with God’s children get back much more than they give. We hope that this has been or will be the case with you. In sharing with children who have suffered so much, and in giving them a second chance at love, acceptance and family, you are doing something that our Lord considers very important. May the smiles of these kids brighten up your life and give you a sense of fulfillment and happiness. You are helping rescue the perishing and give life and opportunity to those who might otherwise not have it. What could be more exciting than that? Thanks and God bless you.Paul and Marlys HealyCebu City

?

GuideStar worked with BoardSource, the national leader in nonprofit board leadership and governance, to create this section, which enables organizations and donors to transparently share information about essential board leadership practices.

Board Orientation & Education ?
Why does this matter? Without clarity around their responsibilities and expectations, board members are not positioned to succeed. They may find themselves challenged to fulfill their governance responsibilities or frustrated by the expectations that the organization has set for them. BoardSource recommends that every new board member participate in a formal orientation process, and that all board members sign a pledge or agreement committing to their board service and to all of the responsibilities and expectations that come with service. Ideally, board members also should participate in a formal governance training program prior to serving on a board.

Does the board conduct a formal orientation for new board members and require all board members to sign a written agreement regarding their roles, responsibilities, and expectations?
Response Not Provided
CEO Oversight ?
Why does this matter? Oversight and management of the chief executive is one of the board’s most important legal responsibilities. The CEO or executive director is the board's single employee, and - just like any other employer/employee relationship - regular and written assessment is critical to ensuring that the chief executive and board are communicating openly about goals and performance. BoardSource recommends that boards conduct formal, written reviews of their chief executives on an annual basis, which should include an in-person discussion with the chief executive and distribution of the written evaluation to the full board.

Has the board conducted a formal, written assessment of the chief executive within the past year?
Response Not Provided
Ethics & Transparency ?
Why does this matter? A commitment to handling conflicts of interests is essential to creating an organizational culture of transparency. Boards should create and follow a policy for identifying and handling conflicts of interest, whether real or perceived. BoardSource recommends that organizations review the conflict-of-interest statement and require signed disclosures from all board members and senior staff on an annual basis.

Have the board and senior staff reviewed the conflict-of-interest policy and completed and signed disclosure statements within the past year?
Response Not Provided
Board Composition ?
Why does this matter? The best boards are composed of individuals who bring a variety of skills, perspectives, backgrounds, and resources to tackle the complex and strategic challenges confronting their organizations. BoardSource recommends that boards commit to diversity and inclusion by establishing written policies and practices, which include strategic and intentional recruitment of diverse board members, continual commitment to inclusivity, and equal access to board leadership opportunities.

Does the board ensure an inclusive board member recruitment process that results in diversity of thought and leadership?
Response Not Provided
Board Performance ?
Why does this matter? Boards need to regularly assess their own performance. Doing so ensures that they are being intentional about how they govern their organization, which is a critical component of effective board leadership. BoardSource recommends that a board conduct a self-assessment of its performance a minimum of once every three years to ensure that it is staying on track with its roles and responsibilities.

Has the board conducted a formal, written self-assessment of its performance within the past three years?
Response Not Provided

Program: Children of Hope School (GuideStar Exchange,

May 2012)

Budget:
$85,000
Category:
Education
Population Served:
Asian/Pacific Islander

Program Description:

Before 1998, CSC used the public schools to educate our children.  With class sizes there averaging 50 students, and admitting children with no education background, this was problematic.  Without any fundraising, God miraculously provided all the funds needed to build our Children of Hope School from a church in Hong Kong and a family in Manila. Children of Hope School is operated using English-based curriculum.  The school is one of the primary reasons we are able to place older children successfully in adoptive homes.  Our dedicated approach to academic development allows children to arrive in new schools at or closer to their age-appropriate level.  Our school operates with just three academic levels, significant one-on-one time and an average student-teacher ratio of 5:1.  It is a member of the Association of Christian Schools International, and licensed by the Philippine Department of Education.

Budget:
$86,000
Category:
Human Services
Population Served:
Asian/Pacific Islander

Program Description:

One of the most critical, and expensive, elements of the our program services is the medical care CSC provides.  CSC treats each child as family, so we provide the best medical care we can--and our budget reflects that fact.  We have our own 12-bed infirmary (built in 2009) because we always have to quarantine new residents while they are treated for worms and other maladies.  In addition, illness spreads quickly in our homes so it is important to have a space to take care of sick children well.

Program Description:

One of our core values reads: "We value adoption and make it a primary placement option for our children."  Our case management budget supports all of the paperwork processes required to manage adoption casework so children can be placed in loving, permanent families.  This does not include administrative or social work salaries.

Impact Summary from the Nonprofit

Merlinda was the oldest of three siblings. They came from a broken home and had been abandoned by their birth parents. Their grandmother sent them out to beg to provide food for the family. They were sickly, scared and hungry. Eventually the government intervened and placed the three kids in a subsidized foster home. Although they were safer in that home, they were not treated well. They were not allowed to sleep in the house with the "real family," but were made to stay outside in the playhouse. They would eat out there after the family had finished eating. They were second class citizens, an inconvenience for the foster family that was only interested in the money they were paid to take in kids. A concerned government worker eventually saw what was happening and referred the three kids to CSC. When the jeep pulled into the CSC compound they were overwhelmed by the grass, the flowers and the beautiful houses. Although they saw the kids going in and out of the houses they wondered where they would be staying. It took Merlinda and her younger siblings quite a while to realize that they were on the "first team" at CSC. They had their own beds in the Cherne Home, and they could eat with the other children. It was almost too much for them to believe. In the coming weeks and months CSC was able to give Merlinda a gift that helped transform her life. We were able to give her back her childhood! Merlinda hadn't had one. Even as a young girl she had been responsible for her younger brother and sister. She was charged with bringing home money from begging and with doing housework. Instead of playing with friends, she was standing on a street corner holding her baby sister and asking for money from passing motorists. Instead of going to school she was cleaning the house or worrying about the health of her siblings. At CSC she was able to turn so many worries over to our caregivers. She was able to go to school. She had friends to play with and a beautiful playground where she could run, fly kites and play tag. She learned to play the clarinet and was able to participate in the school Christmas program. She had a chance to learn about a loving Heavenly Father and a Savior that loved her very much. She was a child again!
