Tahanan means home in Tagalog. Our hope for Tahanan Community Center is to create a space for people to learn God’s Word, fellowship together, and find opportunities to serve within the local community. Since opening its doors in 2013, Tahanan has done this very thing, whether it be to offer Bible seminars, music lessons, movie nights, work in the community garden or fellowship over meals -- Tahanan is becoming a home to many. Since establishing Tacloban City as our hub location in the Philippines, we have hosted bible studies, dinners, and facilitated times for local youth to serve in the Palo community. The community garden at Tahanan has become a source of agricultural education and a place to grow produce to be given to neighbors, a nearby school and to inmates at the Tacloban City Jail.
Part of our goal at Tahanan is to continue opening up opportunities for youth in the local area to serve their neighbors. You can assist us in providing the resources to make this possible for youth groups who are willing, but don't often have the means to have this experience.
