DSWD History

In 1915, the Public Welfare Board (PWB) was created and was tasked to study, coordinate and regulate all government and private entities engaged in social services. In 1921, the PWB was abolished and replaced by the Bureau of Public Welfare under the Department of Public Instruction.

On November 1, 1939, Commonwealth Act No. 439 created the Department of Health and Public Welfare and in 1941, the Bureau of Public Welfare officially became a part of the Department of Health and Public Welfare. In addition to coordinating services of all public and private social welfare institutions, the Bureau also managed all public child-caring institutions and the provision of child welfare services.

In 1947, President Manuel Roxas abolished the Bureau of Public Welfare and created the Social Welfare Commission, under the Office of the President, in its place.

In 1968, Republic Act 5416, known as the Social Welfare Act of 1968, created the Department of Social Welfare, placing it under the executive branch of government. In 1976, the Department of Social Welfare was renamed Department of Social Services and Development (DSSD) through Presidential Decree No. 994. This was signed into law by President Ferdinand E. Marcos and gave the department an accurate institutional identity. On June 2, 1978, the DSSD was renamed Ministry of Social Services and Development (MSSD) in line with the change in the form of government.

In 1987, the MSSD was reorganized and renamed the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) through Executive Order 123, which was signed by President Corazon C. Aquino. Executive Order No. 292, also known as the Revised Administration Code of 1987, established the name, organizational structure, and functional areas of responsibility of DSWD and further defined its statutory authority.

In 1991, the passage of Republic Act No. 7160 otherwise known as the Local Government Code of 1991 affected the devolution of DSWD basic services to local government units.

In 2002, President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo signed Executive Order No. 103 in May 17 dividing Region IV into Region IV-A CALABARZON (composed of Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizan and Quezon) & IV-B MIMAROPA (composed of Mindoro Oriental and Mindoro Occidental, Marinduque, Romblon and Palawan). The province of Aurora was also transferred to Region III.

In 2003, DSWD Region IVA & IV-B operated with separate staff under one Director in the person of Director Thelsa Biolena in the Region IV field office located in Alabang, Muntinlupa City.

In 2004, Director Suzette Agcaoili became the first regional director of Region IV-B who shared the same field office with Region IVA in Alabang, Muntinlupa.

In 2006, DSWD Region IV-B transferred to Malate, Manila in a 3-story building which used to be the Department’s women training center on October 30.

Due to the geographical location of the covered island provinces of MIMAROPA, DSWD IV-B has satellite offices located in each province manned by the Social Welfare and Development (SWAD) Teams.

In 2007, Director Raquel Ascaño from DSWD Central Office was assigned to Region IV-B.

In 2008, Due to Director Ascaño’s retirement in February 2008, Director Remia Tapispisan who was then Assistant Regional took over as OIC-Regional Director with ARD Annie E. Mendoza as OIC-Assistant Regional Director. By June 2008, OIC-Director Remia Tapispisan was transferred to DSWD Field Office V and was replaced by OIC-Director Violeta A. Cruz from the Central Office.

In 2009, DSWD IV-B successfully hosted the Mid-year National Management Development Conference for DSWD Executive and Management Committee officials and regional directors held in Puerto Princesa City on July 1-4.

DSWD IV-B also opened its first MIMAROPA youth center in Bansud, Oriental Mindoro on July 24.

In 2010, OIC-Director Violeta A. Cruz became a full-fledged director and is still the present Regional Director for DSWD Field Office IV-B.
