Aside from the houses, the parties also agreed to provide community development programs such as values formation, livelihood training and others to secure the sustainability of the project and to make change work for all the homepartners in starting their new life in this new community.
All parties are hopeful that the two hundred houses will not only provide shelter to the survivors, but will also help them create memories together as a family.
Another ANCOP site is set to rise at Barangay West Talaongan, Cavinti, Laguna which was made possible with the kindness of its donors, CFC ANCOP Global Foundation Inc.

There was also a newly-built health center within the perimeter.
The Lord continues to bless more people through CFC ANCOP’s Shelter projects as new housing units were turned-over to its beneficiaries at Starville 4 – Tova Vickar CFC ANCOP Winnipeg Community at Barangay Piel, Baliwag, Bulacan last October 8, 2018.
