A child from the Shepherd of the Hills (SOTH) Children's Foundation laughs after dropping his basketballs during a foot race. Joint Civil Military Operations Task Force (JCMOTF) staff members were among 40 other volunteers participating in the community relations (COMREL) project coordinated by the JCMOTF chaplain. The children's home was founded in 1976 after a typhoon displaced the foundation's first 20 children. SOTH is dedicated to providing a caring home for abandoned, neglected, abused or underprivileged children. The COMREL was one of several scheduled by JCMOTF units in support of exercise Balikatan 2013. Balikatan is an annual Republic of the Philippines-U.S. military bilateral training exercise and humanitarian assistance engagement.

Most of our children and teens attend this group level. These groups are targeted for youth of various backgrounds, attending mainstream schools. While they may have some clear strengths in some areas of socio-emotional development, they benefit from additional support in establishing or simply enhancing their peer relationships. Children may (or may not) be experiencing a wide range of issues related to shyness/withdrawal, not enough friendships, bullying or being bullied, inappropriate social behavior, low self-esteem/confidence, or general difficulties fitting in fully within the classroom setting.
