Pasitos de Luz is a registered non-profit charity that provides care for children with disabilities from low-income families in the area of Puerto Vallarta and Banderas Bay, Mexico. We are housed at Casa Connor and are a lifeline for approximately 130 families, with a goal of reaching up to 200 families. Each day we see approximately 70 children. The children who come to Casa Connor suffer from often acute physical and/or psychological disabilities. We offer a large range of services FREE OF CHARGE, including physical therapy, psychological care, nutrition and wellness, education programs and so much more!Go to page
We offer FREE day care services (as most of the parents are single mothers) to enable the parent(s) to work. We focus on providing specialized care, therapies, special education, music, dance, art, balanced meals and nutritional aid (some children take over 45 minutes to feed). We offer a fun, caring, nurturing environment where the children can love and be loved.Go to page
On January 9, 2017, the Pasitos de Luz children began attending their new home - Casa Connor. Casa Connor was donated to Pasitos de Luz to help the children reach their highest potential. They have space and room to grow and flourish. The smiles on their faces when they get off the bus each day has made this dream so worthwhile for everyone involved.Go to page
Pasitos de Luz provides physical/occupational therapy, multiple early stimulation, hydrotherapy and electrotherapy sessions. We also offer alternative therapies through our Temazcal (a traditional Mexican sweat lodge), as well as music and dancing.
The overall number of physical therapy, early stimulation, occupational therapy, hydrotherapy and electrotherapy sessions increased from 5,157 sessions in 2015 to 6,373 sessions in 2016 to 8,965 in 2017. In 2018, these same therapies, plus the Temazcal, music and dancing sessions, totalled 9,045. And in 2019, the increases were once again significant with a total of 13,254 sessions.
In the 5 years from 2015 to 2019, we have offered almost 43,000 therapy sessions!
