|Bacong Children’s Home|
Our first New Life Children's Home was started in Dumaguete City on the island of Negros. We started the home in 1990 with 2 children and two house parents.
Currently we have 48 children in this home . In 1998 we purchased land and built new facilities outside of Dumaguete in the rural area of Bacong complete with a dining hall, playground, and a full-size basketball court. These new facilities allow the children plenty of room to run and play in safety away from traffic and crowded conditions found in town. They are also in walking distance from their school.
There are two house parents in charge of this home. Galelio and Virginia have been involved with New Life Children's Home from the beginning. We also have on staff 2 full-time Social workers she helps us to keep things right with the Philippine government. There are also 5 full-time workers that stay at the home, cook meals, oversea the kids homework and do various chores that need to be done.
