This program is “closest to the heart” of the Mayor Sally because majority of the beneficiaries are the less fortunate and marginalized sector of our society. Hence, wide-ranging services have been packaged to address Family Welfare,Women’s Welfare, Emergency Assistance, Youth Welfare, Disabled Welfare, Children’s Welfare, Senior Citizens Welfare and needs of other less privileged sectors. Foremost among these services are Parent Effectiveness Service (PES), Capability and Skills Training for Women, Relief Assistance during calamities, Organization of Youth Activities, Feeding Program for Children, Community-Based Rehabilitation, Social Pension for Senior Citizens and other Skills and Sustainable Livelihood projects. It is the policy of the LGU to extend assistance to targeted beneficiaries as a developmental concern and not as “dole-outs”.
