P10 M allocated for city’s Bahay Pag–asa
by PIO release

The Department of Justice, through the Juvenile Justice Welfare Council, earmarked P10 million for the establishment of the city’s Bahay Pag-asa.

Councilor Leandro B. Yangot, Jr., one of the proponents of the resolution that requested for the project, said the DOJ is only awaiting the decision of the city government where to construct the building.

The city council earlier approved a resolution requesting the Juvenile Justice Welfare Council through Executive Director Tricia Claire Oco to allot funds for the construction of a Bahay Pag-asa in the city to cater to the needs of children in conflict with the law.

The resolution authored by councilors Yangot, Lilia A. Fariñas, and Maria Mylen Victoria G. Yaranon stated the establishment of appropriate services for children at the local level is of vital importance to address issues regarding child offenders.

In 2006, the Philippines adopted Republic Act 10630 or the Juvenile Justice and Welfare Act of 2006, which provides for the establishment of a Bahay Pag-asa in every local government around the country.

Under the new law, a Juvenile Justice and Welfare Council is to be created responsible for coordinating the implementation of the new features of the landmark child protection law, the first of its kind in Asia.

A Bahay Pag-asa is a 24-hour child-caring institution established, funded and managed by local government units and accredited non-government organizations providing temporary residential care for children in conflict with the law who are above 15 but below 18 years of age and are awaiting court disposition of their pending cases; above 12 to 15 years of age who committed serious crimes with commitment order issued by the courts; above 12 to 15 years of age who are repeat offenders; and above 12 to below 18 years of age who are considered to be neglected, abandoned or abused.

Pursuant to Section 10 of the law, LGUs’ expected expenditures on the local juvenile intervention programs for children in conflict with the law shall be included in the annual budget of the concerned local governments for the operationalization of the said council in the local level.
