Pasitos de Luz is housed at Casa Connor. We are a non-profit charity that provides care for children with disabilities from low income families. We 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 acute physical and/or psychological illnesses. 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
Our mission is to support single moms or families with low resources who have a child with a disability in Banderas Bay, Mexico, free of charge, offering them, with much love and happiness, different types of services and a daycare center that helps their children enjoy life.
Our vision is to be the leading institution for children with disabilities in Puerto Vallarta and the surrounding region, through our achievements in physical rehabilitation, physical education and speech therapy, which distinguishes us from others; and to offer transport, recreational spaces and learning and development workshops for the families of our children.
We would like to say a small ‘thank you’ or ‘gracias’ to new donors to our priority Love Pasitos Monthly campaign by offering a beautiful Pasitos pendant.
Our pendants have been specially designed and produced in Puerto Vallarta using Mexican silver. For over five centuries, Mexico has been renowned for the quality of its silver and is the biggest silver producer in the world. Therefore, we thought it appropriate to offer Mexican silver pendants to new donors to our Love Pasitos Monthly campaign.
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!
Volunteers are key to our success and our sustainability. We always welcome extra pairs of hands, whether to help at meal times or to assist in games and activities and more! In addition, if you are a trained professional in areas such as physiotherapy, occupational therapy and/or special education, we would love to make the most of your expertise. Regardless of whether you have an hour, a day or an entire season, our team will welcome your assistance and find a place where you can share your talents.
If you believe all kids deserve a chance, please consider joining our volunteer team!
