History of Barangay 599
( Sa Pananaliksik ng dating Sekretarya Josefina dela Serna na ngayon ay nanunungkulan sa kanyang ikalawang termino bilang Kagawad )
Kung ating babalikan ang panahon bago dumating ang Kastila (1521), mayroon ng mga barangay (villages) na binubuo ng mga tatlumpu (30) hanggang isang daang (100) pamilya at ito ay pinamumunuan ng "datu". Ang pinunong ito ang siyang humahawak ng lehislatibo, ehekutibo at judicial na kapangyarihan para sa kanyang pinanghahawakang barangay.
Dumaan ang ibat-ibang pangulo ng Pilipinas, at nang dumating ang panahon ng dating Pangulong Ferdinand Marcos, lalong pinalakas ang barangayan. Ang pagtatalga ng mga namumuno ng barangay noon na kinalaunan ay tinawag na Kapitan de Barangay, ay hindi pa idinadaan sa halalan.
Sa barangay na ito, ang kauna-unahang Barangay Chairman ay isang babae, sa katauhan nng dating Kgg. Consolacion Lucas. Humigit-kumulang tatlumpu (30) lamang ang bilang ng pamilyang naninirahan sa lugar na ito ng Old Sta. Mesa, na ngayon ay Barangay 599 na.
Nang magkaroon na ng regular na halalan para sa pagpapalit ng mamumuno, sinundan si Kgg. C. Lucas ni Kgg. Ramon Pascual, sumunod si Kgg. Wilfredo Tana, at dalawang beses na pamumuno ni Kgg. Benjamin Macalinao.
Sa panahon ng nasirang Brgy. Captain Ramon Pascual, nagkaroon ng proyektong pabahay ang gobyerno. Magmula sa pribadong lupa, isa ang Barangay 599 sa nakuha at pinamahalaan ng National Housing Authority upang mabahaginan ng sariling lupa ang mga naninirahan dito. Hindi nagtagal, nagdatingan ang mga maliliit na pamilya mula sa iba't ibang lugar ng Metro Manila at maging sa mga probinsya.
Sa kasalukuyan, sa magandang pamumuno at pamamahala ng ating Brgy. Captain Jose Milo Lacatan, ang Barangay 599 ay binubuo na ng humigit-kumulang apat na libong residente na binubuo ng _________pamilya at ________ na mga botante.
Sa tulong ng kanyang pitong kagawad, Sk Chairman, kasama ang iba pang opisyal ng barangay na ito, marami na ang maipagmamalaking pagbabago tulad ng pagpapalawak ng mga palaruan ng mga bata, pagpapaganda ng barangay hall at barangay chapel, pagpapatayo ng "Welcome Marker Arch", pagkakaroon ng telepono at radyo na malaking tulong sa komunikasyo, at iba pa.
Sa kasalukuyan ay moderno na rin ang paraan ng ating pakikipagkominikasyon dahil sa pagkakaroon ng computer ng ating barangay. Sa tulong ng internet ay madali nang maipaaabot sa mga kinauukulan ang bawat hinaing ng mamayan.
Ngunit higit sa ano pa mang materyal na bagay na nakamit ng pamunuan, ang pagsuporta at pagiging aktibo ng mga organisasyon dito ang siyang naging pinaka matibay at epektibong kasangkapan sa mabilis na pagsulong ng Baranga 599.

Sta. Mesa :Santa Mesa, Manila is a district in the city of Manila, a component of Metro Manila, the National Capital Region (NCR) of the Philippines. The name is derived from the "Santa Mesa de la Misericordia", the owner of the land during the Spanish colonial period, which was an "obra pía", meaning "pious work", and provided social services. The original town center, known as a "poblacion", is on Old Santa Mesa Road, from Stop and Shop to V. Mapa. However, the town was enlarged and has come to include the streets of Ramon Magsaysay, Anonas, Santol, Maganda, Pureza, Paltoc, Bataan, M.H. Dela Fuente, Bacood, and V. Mapa. The town was merged with Sampaloc and the combination merged with Manila, as districts.

Community Organizing Process :Community Organizing Process
Integration :Integration “Planting rice is never fun” that is why one has to be prepared for the hard work. Eventually, one learns the proper way of Planting, weeding, and harvesting. One soon overcome slips at the muddy paddies and skin irritations at the touch of hay and grass. Being integrated in the community is the core being a community organizer. In brgy.599, integration was in the form of being with the barangay helping out in the construction of the hall, visit and talk with the mothers while selling and washing their clothes, listening to their stories and believing their dreams Nevertheless, we realize integration is not just being with them, but journeying with them in their dreams and aspirations, struggles and challenges. Integration is not just an overnight activity.Its a long process. One may not be integrated even if he stays in the community for the longest time. One can be integrated even if he stays there for two weeks but never fails to listen and open his heart to the people.
