On July 28, 2011, a small group of friends of St. Martin de Porres gathered in Tondo, Manila for the groundbreaking ceremony of the half-way house, which will support graduates of SMDP who are pursuing education and work opportunities in the city. After a few words, Father Boyet blessed the site and handed it over to the workers. Construction of the house will begin in August.
