Our Vision:

Every child has a loving family where he or she is nurtured and given the opportunity to grow and develop into a mature, caring and responsible individual.

 

Our Mission:

To respond, in the name of Christ, to the various needs of children and their families giving them hope for a better future by developing and enhancing their physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being.

 

Our History:

Concordia Children's Services, Inc. was founded in 1983, in partnership with another child caring agency for abandoned and neglected children. As the organization grew, we were incorporated. In 1988, our name was changed to Concordia to reflect the Lutheran heritage.

In 1989 we expanded to serve the street and urban poor children in Pasig City. By 1996, we expanded again to serve the needs of street and urban poor children in the Santa Mesa area, which is in the center of Manila. 

 

We expanded serving babies and street children in 2013 by renovating the Santa Mesa location, and adding space for our orphans and street children to have more resources. We also added added additional social workers. In 2015 we were awarded with the highest level of accreditation by the Philippine governments Department of Social Services for the care we gave to our children and the sytems in place for accountability. The number of underprivileged children in our sponsorship program also increased from 80 to 104 elementary and high school children.
