What is APAC?

APAC, I.A.P. Asociación Pro Personas con Parálisis Cerebral (Association in Favor of People with Cerebral Palsy) is a nonprofit organization, founded in 1970, which provides specialized care to people with cerebral palsy and other related disabilities.

Mission Statement

APAC’s mission is to improve quality of life of people with cerebral palsy and of their families. The organization serves 500 people daily, including babies, children, youth and adults at its facilities in Mexico City. Care provided at the organization has a biopsychosocial approach, and is divided into three spheres: formal education from kindergarten to high school; physical rehabilitation and health services; and, alternative education, which includes independent-living workshops, vocational training, and support for social inclusion.

Vision Statement

APAC’s vision is to always be a cutting-edge organization in the care of people with Cerebral Palsy and related disabilities in Mexico and Latin America.

History

Founded in 1970 as a support group of mothers with children with cerebral palsy, APAC has always strived to provide support to those who have no easy access to health, education, vocational training and social inclusion. 

Our Organization

APAC’s mission is to improve the quality of life of individuals with cerebral palsy, and their families. The organization serves 500 people daily, including babies, children, youth and adults at its facilities in Mexico City.

Offering more than 75 programs, APAC changes the lives of its beneficiaries through three main areas of intervention:
