WHO WE ARE
The Homeless People's Federation Philippines, Inc. (HPFPI)
is a national network of 88 (registered) urban poor community associations and 88 savings groups (not registered) spanning all over the three major regions in the Philippines, Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao.
As of June 2017, the Federation has about 8,138 individual members representing 18 cities and municipalities.
It promotes community driven approaches to :
1. securing tenure
2. upgrading and housing
3. basic urban services
4. disaster risk reduction
5. post- disaster reconstruction and rehabilitation
Members of the federation promote community savings as a tool, both as a social movement and at the same time as a way to build communities’ financial capacities. The Federation’s work focuses on low-income communities in the high-risk areas, voluntary resettlement and post relocation activities, disaster management and reconstruction processes through community-led initiatives.
