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.
