DIR. Marites M. Maristela, CESO III
The Department of Social Welfare and Development Region III is here to help people help themselves. We package our programs and services to assists our claim-holders in their needs, and not to simply provide. It is our duty, as public servants to ensure that help is available without taking away their dignity as able citizens of our country.
We realize this by enabling the public to take an active role in family development and nation building. Doing this alone is difficult and close to impossible. That is why we champion convergence with other national agencies, provincial and local government, civil society organizations, people’s organizations, and non-government organizations.
Together, let us improve one life, one family and one community at a time, and creat ripples of positive change towards a resilient and people-driven nation that is worth living for. It is with great honor to serve the people of Central Luzon.
