It houses four agencies/institutions:
Existing Agency Resources
The agency is run by 38 employees under the leadership of Mayor Joseph Estrada. He appointed Mrs. Jean Ramos, a registered social worker from the Manila Department of Social Welfare, to take care of the daily operations of the agency.
Within the complex lies the Valeriano Furguso Memorial Elementary School, an elementary school which serves the educational needs of the beneficiaries inside the complex and those who reside in the neighboring barangays. More than 200 elementary pupils are studying in this school. High school education is also enjoined by the MBTC beneficiaries through the Valeriano Fuguso Memorial High School.
Other resources that can be found in the agency include the chapel, a medium-sized swimming pool, a basketball court, a fishpond, and a small "greening project" that was initially developed by CEU.
Programs and services on education, livelihood, socio-cultural, sports/physical fitness, recreation, medical and dental, dietary, rehabilitation and burial services for the elderly are offered by the complex with limited financial and material support from the City Government of Manila.
