Every Donation Matters!

Children’s Empowerment of the Philippines is dedicated to providing quality facilities and personnel. Our personnel are committed to implementing hope-giving programs for the orphaned, abandoned, neglected, and vulnerable children through holistic formation to prepare them to become valuable members of society. As of February 2023, our facilities have been built, the personnel are trained, the permits are secured, and we are ready to welcome the first group. The photo you see above is our first outreach to the community in which school supplies were handed out to over 50 of the neighborhood children.

In order to make this all a reality, Children’s Empowerment of the Philippines is now embarking on a fundraising campaign to underwrite the cost of operating this home to serve the children. The estimated annual cost to care for the first 50 children is $200,000. By reaching our funding goal and donating to our organization we will be providing food, shelter, education, and medical attention.

Children’s Empowerment of the Philippines (CEOPH) a 501(c)(3) Nonprofit, is seeking funds to provide a compassionate, safe and nurturing home-environment where children are cared for and formed into valuable members of the community by providing quality facilities and personnel who are committed to give hope-giving programs for the orphaned, abandoned, neglected, vulnerable foundling, surrendered infants, and children through holistic formation, social-work interventions and services in order to prepare them for adoption, reformation and re-integration into families and society.

The Story of

St. Dominic orphanage

We provide abandoned children in Iloilo, Philippines a new home, education, and future.

The relevance of the new facility, called St. Dominic Children’s Home, is to respond to the need of an orphanage in Western Visayas, a region composed of six provinces with 16 component cities. This region has a limited number of institutions, particularly in Iloilo City itself.

Our Story

Nonprofit Organization

Children’s Empowerment of the Philippines is a nonprofit organization founded by San Francisco retired businessman, Spencer Holeman. Following his 2019 visit to the City of Iloilo in the Philippines, he saw the great need to care for homeless street children.

Destroyed by fire

While in Iloilo, Mr. Holeman met with the Dominican Sisters, who formerly operated an orphanage for girls. Unfortunately, the orphanage ceased operating because it was destroyed by fire.

Working with the Sisters

Shortly after this visit, Spencer Holeman began working with the Sisters to rebuild a new orphanage which now is a beautiful 14,500 square-foot residential home able to care for 50 homeless children. In addition to providing a warm and caring environment where the children will live, their health care and educational needs will be met.
