It plays a crucial role in informing the public that- behind the numbers, are faces. Real stories of people who chose to fight poverty and with determination made the big steps towards improving their quality of life. The second quarter of 2016 tested our resilience and our willpower. The onslaught of Super Typhoon Lawin the region meant more work hours and less time with the family, however, the response from our staff, volunteers and other agencies is overwhelmingly heartwarming. One particular display of camaraderie was the human chain done in Mr. Province. Due to a collapsed bridge, the people created a human chain across the river to move the goods from one side to the other. This is Cordillera’s way of helping each other. 2016 also made us realize how important it is, for one to truly realize the value of understanding the core of public service, that more than a profession, it is a way of life. We live public service in hours spent after 5pm and on weekends and we breathe public service when we are called to render duty. As we move towards another year of service, it is my hope that we will be able to continue to work beyond our term of reference and maximizing resource that would result to more success stories from our partner beneficiaries.

DSWD - CAR DSWD brings services closer to beneficiaries through ‘Off-Site Serbisyo’ The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) has recently released Memorandum Circular (MC) 11, Series of 2016 which aims to bring its services closer to the Department’s clients and beneficiaries. MC 11, S. 2016 entitled “DSWD Off-Site Serbisyo: Special Guidelines on Off-Site Release or Provision of Services to Beneficiaries of DSWD Protective Services Program (PSP)” reiterates the dedication of the Department in providing accessibility to and convenience for beneficiaries to the protective services of the Department which includes the Expanded Assistance to Individuals in Crisis Situation (E-AICS). “Through our Off-Site Serbisyo, individuals in crisis situation who are qualified to avail of our assistance need not to travel to the Regional Office. The assistance will not be released outside DSWD offices or premises but in areas like barangay halls, Child Development or Day Care Centers, and multi-purpose halls taking into consideration the safety and well-being of the beneficiaries and DSWD service providers”, DSWD-CAR Regional Director Janet P. Armas said. “This will be a challenge for us considering the geographical terrain of the Cordillera Administrative Region, but we accept the challenge to provide not just fair but efficient social welfare service”, Armas added. MC 11 is an off-shoot of MC 9 which reiterates the Department’s ole authority in identifying its beneficiaries. MC 9 also stated that the release of DSWD assistance is allowed only within DSWD premises. “Identified Off-Site Serbisyo locations will be coordinated and communicated with our partners in our areas. Our beneficiaries will be informed on this and our personnel or their counterparts will be coordinating closely to ensure that the implementation of our programs and services will benefit our target beneficiaries”, Armas shared. The Social Focus As defined by the DSWD, target beneficiaries of the protective services program are individuals who are indigent, vulnerable, disadvantaged or those in the formal sector, and other sectors who are in crisis situation based on the assessment of DSWD social worker. The Off-Site Serbisyo will be implemented when it is shown that onsite payment or release results or tends to result to inconvenience to beneficiaries. Once implemented and locations are established, this will be available during office days and hours. # DSWD-CAR, SOCIAL MARKETING UNIT, Nerizza Faye G. Villanueva 3
