In cases wherein reintegration is not immediately possible, Bahay Tuluyan provides short-term and long-term shelter to children in need of protection. The program aims to provide quality rights-based alternative family care as a last resort and for the shortest possible time for children without safe family environments.
Some children are housed in small group family-style accommodation where they live with house parents. Older children are given the opportunity to live semi-independently in group homes, developing important skills for their reintegration into the community.
In cases of emergencies, children are provided shelter along with their families until the crisis is resolved.
