Angeles City will soon see the rise of the P29.9 million “Kanlungan ng Kabataan” that will serve as a center for child care, rehabilitation and reformation, officials said.
Angeles City Mayor Carmelo Lazatin Jr. will lead the groundbreaking ceremony of Kanlungan ng Kabataan in Barangay Sta. Teresita on May 3.
The Kanlungan ng Kabataan will be a “one-stop-shop youth custody center where the Bahay Pag-asa, and Sagip Batang Solvent will be located,” officials said.
Four buildings will be constructed at the Kanlungan ng Kabataan. These include a training center, a classroom for the alternative learning system, recreation area, mess halls and dorms.
Alongside the Kanlungan ng Kabataan is the home-for-the-aged facility of the city government.
The city will also establish a drop-in center for rescued street families and children.
