Vision and Mission

Our vision is to see healthy communities in underprivileged urban areas with effective and sustainable home-based health programs. Our mission is to develop professional Community Health Workers (CHW) with good moral values. To achieve this, we collaborate with Local Government Units (LGU) in the development of CHWs who are professional and service-oriented with upright moral values.


FAMCOHSEF from 1991-2011

FAMCOHSEF’s focus for the 1 st 20 years, from 1991 to 2011 was on the health needs of the underprivileged urban communities. For five years we held a weekly medical free clinic in Balic-Balic, Sampaloc then in 1996 we shifted to providing much-needed training in basic health care with the Primary Health Care Program (PHCP) in Barrio Tulo at the foothills of the Makiling Conference Center. We moved to Muntinlupa in 1998 and graduated the 1st batch of the PHCP that same year. From 1998 to 2011, 529 trainees graduated from 26 batches of the PHCP. Our graduates are Community Health Workers (CHW) majority of whom served the constituents as Barangay Health Workers (BHW). We did other things too like medical missions, feeding programs, Nutrition Education, and the Bulilit Training Program for select classes from a public school in Las Piñas.

FAMCOHSEF from 2012-2022

FAMCOHSEF’s focus for the next 10 years, from 2012 til 2022 was on equipping its trainees with higher-level skills and knowledge in elderly care. The main programs for higher-level skills training are the Care of the Elderly Training Program (CETP) and the Continuing Education Program (CEP).


Care of the Elderly Training Program (CETP)

The Care of the Elderly Training Program (CETP) is meant to enhance the skills of graduates of the Primary Health Care Program in caring for the elderly in communities, homes of the trainees, or in private homes, institutions, and the like. We also saw in this program the opportunity for job creation for the underprivileged. We eventually opened the course to walk-in participants and participants employed in private homes. From 2012 to 2022 we completed 8 batches of CETP with a total of 261 graduates.

Continuing Education Program (CEP)

The Continuing Education Program (CEP) supplements the CETP. The calendar year is divided into the CETP from July to December and then the CEP from February to June of the following year. Topics and speakers of the CEP are chosen to enhance the learning of our graduates and to provide continuous formation in work and life skills.

Nutrition Education Program (NEP)

The Nutrition Education Program (NEP). The NEP focuses on good eating habits to ensure good health and prevent common illnesses that occur due to poor nutrition. Beneficiaries of this program are graduates of our health education courses, current trainees, prospective enrollees, mothers of children from 1 to 5 years old, friends, and relatives.

SINAG Youth Club for Girls

SINAG started in April of 2019 in a building in Barangay Poblacion, Muntinlupa City and continued even during COVID restriction time. SINAG provides a venue, both virtual and real, for young girls aged 7 to 14 from the poor communities in Muntinlupa to enjoy, learn, and benefit from activities such as formative classes, academic tutorials, art, science, and sports activities and cultural trips. In 2022, SINAG went hybrid.

Tondo Medical Programs

FAMCOHSEF started in Tondo in November 2017 with the celebration of the 1st World Day of the Poor. It was a whole day’s activity which included a medical mission, activities for children such as storytelling, games, a class on proper brushing of the teeth, talks for parents on marriage, childcare, dental care, general health care, and giving of family packages with food and hygiene items. The venue was the San Pablo Apostol Parish (SPAP).

The FAMCOHSEF Board of Trustees decided to have a regular presence in Tondo throughout the year and make health care accessible to its beneficiaries. On March 19, 2021, the FAMCOHSEF Tondo Telekonsulta Project (FTTP) began, providing free medical consultation via Facebook Messenger to patients in Tondo and nearby areas with 12 volunteer doctors providing time and experience. Then in April 2022, an onsite face-to-face once a week free medical consultation with a medical doctor on hand was made available at the FAMCOHSEF SPAP Clinic.
