The study established the present condition on the demand for qualified guidance counselors in the Department of Education (DepEd) to man the needs of the guidance and counseling program of the Department in general and the homeroom guidance in particular. The research design of the study was case analysis where documentary analysis was used as the main mode of analyzing data that come from reports, issued Department Orders, and declarations of the Department’s Chief Officer. Results found that the main issue of lack of qualified guidance counselor have at least five sub-issues namely: lack of qualified applicant for the unfilled items of guidance counselor; low salary grade for entering Guidance Counsellor; small schools in far or isolated places has no available plantilla position item for Guidance counselor; unavailability of Teacher Education Program on Guidance Counselling; and pending Senate and House Bills for the upgrading of plantilla positions for guidance counselors. Findings showed that agencies such as DepEd, CHED, DBM, CSC, PAGC, PRC, and Congress must all work together to address the identified issues as these issues were categorized as concerns specific to the identified agencies. Finally, the NEUST College of Education may conduct a capacity-building program for the teachers of DepEd who are acting as guidance counselors, for the teachers in the conduct of guided homeroom guidance and the preparation of a Mental Health Tool Kit.
