Maximo Cornejo - Puerto Vallarta Children Shelter :: Inicio


Casa Hogar Maximo Cornejo Quiroz A.C.

An Orphanage near the Puerto Vallarta
International Airport

For many years Casa Hogar Maximo Cornejo Quiroz A.C., an orphanage near the Puerto Vallarta International Airport, has been sheltering 53 children up to the age of seventeen.

For the orphanage, it has become an increasingly difficult task to look after these children, many of whom are quickly turning into adults. Some of the kids need special treatment, others need psychological treatment, but all of them are in need of the love and support that comes so naturally to the people of Puerto Vallarta.

Most of the children go to school, but the little ones (toddlers) spend their days at the orphanage, where a handful of volunteers work with wonderful people like Luz Aurora Arredondo, Rocio, and Casa Hogar founder, Sra. Elisa Cornejo, who do their best to make the orphanage feel like home.

Because of the laws in Puerto Vallarta these children cannot be adopted, so their lives are confined within the walls of Casa Hogar, where these "surrogate mothers" do their best to provide them with daily activities like learning, playing and interacting with others.

Since these kids are rarely exposed to outside influences, I have met several people from Ontario, Canada and the Untied States who spend endless hours at Casa Hogar assisting with these children who are so responsive to friendly play.

Our mission is to find other people who will be visiting the Puerto Vallarta area that might be able to take items to the orphange. Shipping is very expensive as UPS only flies parcels in which is about $200.00 for a small parcel.

Items in need:
  • Toothpaste
  • Tooth brushes
  • Diapers
  • Powdered Milk
  • Mops
  • Bleach
