Since 1950’s, the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) has been providing 24-hour nurturing environment to various vulnerable sectors through its residential care facilities. These centers serve as home and provide rehabilitation programs/services for children in need of special protection, youth with special needs, women in especially difficult circumstances, older persons, persons with disability and individuals in crisis. Relative to the implementation of residential care services, accreditation of services of centers are performed by the Department through the Standards Bureau (SB) to help the facilities comply with/maintain the standards in providing optimal services to its clients.

This study attempts to investigate how well programs/services are being implemented by centers with different levels of accreditation and how accreditation is associated with delivery of services and outcomes of the residential care services. Outcomes were also evaluated to gauge the responsiveness/effectiveness of rehabilitation programs and services of level 1, 2, and 3 accredited centers.
