DSWD–CAR enjoins staff to be more steadfast servants
Carlito C. Dar / Yousel Abdelkhaleq
Region, 4-13-2014


Department of Social Welfare and Development Regional Director Leonardo Reynoso enjoined DSWD personnel to be more committed in providing service especially to the marginalized sector to realize agency’s strategic goal for 2014 to 2016.

During DSWD-CAR’s general assembly and 63rd anniversary program at the Baguio Convention Center last April 5, Reynoso said their 2014 thrusts and priorities gear towards the embedding of “Matapat, mahusay at magiliw na pagli-lingkod” especially to the poor, vulnerable, and marginalized sectors.

Reynoso said DSWD’s priority thrusts and strategies until 2016 are anchored on three goals: To raise the number of Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program families with improved well-being; expanding the number of National Household Targeting System for Poverty Reduction households covered by at least two social welfare and development programs; and increasing the number of provinces, municipalities, and cities that have fully functional local SWD offices.

DSWD’s programs for the poor is anchored on the 4Ps, in convergence with its Kapit Bisig Laban sa Kahirapan- Comprehensive and Integrated Delivery of Social Services and the Sustainable Livelihood Program.

Aside from these core programs, DSWD will also continue the implementation of their programs on protective services, disaster risk reduction and management, recovery and reintegration of victims of trafficking, supplementary feeding for day care students, and social pension for indigent senior citizens, among other programs.

Reynoso said the 4Ps is set for expansion and extension.

“We are expanding the program to cover those with 15 to 18 years old children. For Set 1 family beneficiaries who are supposed to graduate from the program this year, they will be set for extension if they have children under the said age bracket,” he said.

Reynoso added another priority of the DSWD is the establishment of a crisis intervention unit in all the provinces in the region, which goal is to expedite the delivery of services and financial assistance especially to those who need medical intervention.

“Our partners are the local government units and the provincial arms of DSWD. Right now we are already in the preparatory stage, though we expect within this month our crisis intervention units will be all fully operational,” Reynoso said.
