Mission

Tahanan Sta. Luisa (TSL) is a crisis intervention and recovery center whose mission is to provide rehabilitation for physically/sexually abused and prostituted street girls, between the ages of 11-15 years old upon admission. TSL is a non-government organization (NGO) and one of only three residential centers within Metro Manila which focuses specifically on the admission of pre-adolescent/adolescent street girls - one of the most vulnerable and marginalized demographic groups in the Philippines. TSL provides residential care for street girls for these formative years, assisting the girls in their journey through their social, physical and emotional development and growth, while also supporting them to overcome the traumatic negative experiences of their past. TSL can accommodate up to 23 girls at a time and since it was founded in 1997, it has supported 560 street girls. The ultimate goal for TSL is to support the girls in their healing and recovery, facilitate the reconnection with their families (where feasible), and prepare them to be productive and independent members of society in the future.

Programs

Tahanan Sta. Luisa operates using the Caring, Healing and Teaching framework (CHT). In order to implement this framework, our programs and services are divided as such: Caring: Caring includes the provision of basic needs such as food, clothing, shelter, and residential care. Healing: Healing includes the psycho-social interventions in the form of psychological and psychiatric services, individual and group counseling, therapies, medical and dental provisions. Teaching: Teaching includes the non-formal and alternative basic education, life skills training, income-generating projects, and spiritual and values clarification. To fulfill the objectives, the following four programs were developed: Home Life Assistance, Educational Assistance, Socio-Cultural Development Assistance and Livelihood Assistance.
