Fullness of life is ours to choose and claim.
By divine design, we are called to reclaim and reintegrate inherent powers to create a healthy, transformed and productive way of BEING, DOING and HAVING.
Sixteen years may not be that long for some institutions but for the Reintegration for Care and Wholeness Foundation, Inc. (May 9, 2000 to the present), it has been long enough to set a track record to assure those it journeys with that it is here for the long haul.
Its founder, HARRIET HAUTEA HORMILLOSA, PhD. a former religious sister of the Servants of St. Joseph for 34 years and a volunteer associate counselor and trainer for the Jesuit Center for Family Ministries for 13 years, set up this foundation with the help of some colleagues and friends.
The founding group was responding to the signs of the times such as, stress overload, burn out, disequilibrium, relational and family crises arising from personal and inter-generational psycho-spiritual issues.
They also sought to address the growing consciousness and aspiration of people desiring to live quality lives in a society caught up in chronic, rapid changes, fast pace and digital lifestyles, pervading quick-fix attitude and instant gratification mentality, among others.
This Circle of Grace, which fondly calls itself the RCW Family, has been a critical mass of people committed to tirelessly work on their inner wellness, growth and transformation and to help others to do the same.
RCW CARES came to birth as an initiative to help in transforming consciousness and healing lives, especially among Filipino life-carers and care providers, both in the Philippines and abroad.
With no funding agencies backing it up and solely relying on God's providence and the hard work of the teammates and their friends, the foundation has continued its services with passion and determination and is still committed to go onward and forward, through God's grace and the determination of the stakeholders.
The REINTEGRATION FOR CARE AND WHOLENESS seeks to heal, nurture, ad empower the Filipino care-giving soul by promoting personal transformation and psycho-spiritual integration in life-carers, animators, individuals and groups engaged in any form of service in our society.
It envisions the concretization in life of Jesus’ own raison d’être: “I came that you may have life and have it to the full” (John 10:10).
To provide ongoing development, healing, and transformational programs to enhance the Filipino’s sense of personal power and capacity for life-caring by employing an integrative and psycho-spiritual approach.
1. To develop and enrich transformation and healing programs by means of counseling, seminar worshops, and support group processing.
2. To offer continuing training and formation for implementers of programs and sevices for life-carers.
3. To inspire and organize volunteers and support systems to assist in the implementation of the programs.
4. To network with other agencies and organizations through sharing of resources and mutual support in carrying out common goals.
5. To undertake research activities responsive to the psycho-spiritual needs of individuals or groups engaged in life-caring.
6. To mobilize all possible resources, human and material, national and international, public and private to carry out programs to enhance the Filipino’s sense of personal power and capacity for growthful life-caring.
The Foundation has preferential concern for educators, especially public school teachers and is committed to their integral formation.
RCWFI believes in the spirit and power of volunteerism and the healing benefits of synergized caring groups and support systems.
In order to continue to provide care for others, life-carers need to lovingly and effectively care for themselves.
We, Filipinos, have long been made to believe that ours is a damages culture and our psyche a fractured one. Indeed, a look at the values we uphold gives evidence of how we focus on the negative rather than positive manifestation. This distorted view of our innate worth has given rise to our prevailing codependent and enmeshed relationships. We have an inherent tendency to be externally referented rather than internally referented, which is to see our value through our own eyes rather than those of others. In effect, we measure our worth by what we can accomplish and by how significant we are to others who validate us.
In a culture highly dependent on life-carers or persons who look after the well being and growth of others, little concern is given to carer’s needs. With so much demand on services to be done, help to be extended, ministries to be offered, work to be accomplished, we show minimal care for the welfare of those tasked with caring and caregiving. Even carers themselves need to be taught a more effective, balanced, holistic and integrative way of caring to include all the dimensions of their lives.
Carers must first and foremost be “empowerers” themselves, both of themseves and othes. Favoring the Model of Growth over the long time held Model of Perfection, most carers must go through a paradigm shift if they must become agents for furthering positive transformation within their communities and in society at large.
We are proponents of the Healing, Integrating, and Transforming Psycho-spiritual Approach to Counseling, Life Coaching, Training, Education, Support Systems and Family Care.
We employ the RCW Growth Model - a holistically humane methodology inspiring Personal Inner Work and the Enhancement of Authentic Life Power.
