Mission

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.

Children's Shelter of Cebu (CSC) operates four homes for 90-95 abandoned, neglected and abused children in Cebu City, Philippines. CSC is about restoring lives. We've been doing so since 1979 by ministering to each child holistically. We provide food, shelter and medicine, but also schooling, counseling and relationships that foster healing. CSC is a Christian interdenominational ministry.
