Cagayan de Oro City officials formally inaugurated yesterday the newly completed ORO BAHAY PAG-ASA, a new 60-bed capacity rehabilitation center for Children in Conflict with the Law (CICL). Meanwhile, city officials also broke ground the Boystown Center for abandoned and homeless male street kids. Both facilities are located within the 10-hectare Oro Care Village in Maitum, Upper Puerto.
The Bahay Pag-asa project is a joint undertaking between the city government and the Regional Juvenile Justice and Welfare Committee (RJJWC)-10.
The 2-storey facility is the latest to be completed in the 10-hectare complex which was donated by the Rosales family of Capitol University way back in the 1980s. Three buildings were already completed last year – the Golden Home for Elderly, Infirmary and Mother Theresa Chapel.
Meanwhile, construction of the Boystown Center will also start soon.
