Tahanan Sta. Luisa (TSL) is a crisis intervention and recovery center whose mission is to provide rehabilitation for physically/sexually abused and prostituted street girls, between the ages of 11-15 years old upon admission. Tahanan is a non-government organization (NGO) and one of only three residential centers within Metro Manila which focuses specifically on the admission of pre-adolescent/adolescent street girls - one of the most vulnerable and marginalized demographic groups in the Philippines. Tahanan provides residential care for street girls for these formative years, assisting the girls in their journey through their social, physical and emotional development and growth, while also supporting them to overcome the traumatic negative experiences of their past. Tahanan Sta. Luisa can accommodate up to 23 girls at a time and since it was founded in 1997, it has supported 560 street girls. The ultimate goal for Tahanan is to support the girls in their healing and recovery, and prepare them to be productive and independent members of society in the future.
