Push International and Padres y Compadres (a Mexican children’s therapy organization) work collaboratively at our Mazatlan Hub. The dream began when Rita Correra, a mother of a young child with a disability saw the unmet need for children’s therapy. Read More
The Wheelchair Repair and Maintenance Shop

Sergio works at the shop to provide sustainable on-going care to people who receive donations of mobility equipment from Push International or other organizations throughout the year. Read More
The Therapy and Rehabilitation Center
The therapy and rehabilitation center is staffed by licenced Mexican therapists and mothers of children with disabilities. The center works like a co-op. Some families drop their child off at the rehab center for services, pay a small fee and go to work. Read More
Horse Therapy (aka Equino or Hippotherapy)
Horse therapy takes place at the Hub 5 days per week. Children from the Hub and the local community take turns riding a horse a half an hour session each day. The therapy is designed to help improve the child’s physical abilities. Read More
The Cyber Café and Sewing Center
The Hub is located in a residential area of Mazatlan across from a large park. In 2006 the Hub added a cyber (internet) café to serve the local community and generate income for the Hub. Later that year the sewing center opened for business. Mothers and other family members that have children receiving therapy services at the Hub work in the sewing center creating clothing, bed linens, table cloths and other items that are sold at the Hub and in the market to generate income for the Hub. A Laundromat will be added in late 2008 as another way to generate income and serve the local community where the Hub is located.
