About Us

The Children's Rehabilitation Center (CRC) is a non- stock, non-profit, non-government institution serving children and families who are victims of state violence in the Philippines. Its services are focused on children in the rural and urban areas who suffer physical health problems, emotional disorders and social maladjustments due to traumatic events such as arrest, torture, forced displacement, strafing, bombing, massacre, disappearance and other forms of human rights violations.

CRC also provides immediate psycho-social aid to children and families who are affected by natural disasters and accepts referrals for children-victims of other social disasters such as abuse and exploitation on a case-to-case basis. Through its different programs, CRC hopes to strengthen the support system of the affected children to cope in a threatening milieu.
