Corazon de Niña

Orphanages are common in Mexico and Puerto Vallarta is no exception. “Changing the course of history – One child at a time” is the philosophy of Fundación Corazon de Niña, which translates as Heart of the Child. Corazon de Niña has two homes in Puerto Vallarta. They stand adjacent to each other; one sheltering girls, the other housing the male population. These are at-risk children and two-thirds are female. On average there are around forty children living in this nurturing, loving environment, mas o menos. Puerto Vallarta takes a pride in supporting this non-profit institute. Ages run from newborn to twenty-three years. Without the aid of local businesses, keeping things going would be a lot tougher.

The goals of Corazon de Niña are simple. Security, love, values and knowledge. These are the foundations of a well balanced person who can grow up to be a responsible adult. Attention is focused on the comforts of a normal home: clean clothes after a shower; hair that is stylishly brushed and combed, with ribbons and braids for girls; toothpaste, soap and shampoo, things most of us don’t think about on a daily basis. A safe place to sleep with clean sheets and blankets; nourishing food served at a table where one can share thoughts and ideas, like a family does; friendship. An uncomplicated pedestal of unconditional love is the strength of this loving home in Puerto Vallarta. Days at Corazon de Niña function without punishment; no voices raised in anger; without accusations or judgment. Counselors work to teach by their personal example and children are encouraged to seek spirituality. Gentleness and understanding with communication are the cornerstones of lessons. Children are taught with powerful values that aim to guide them to be confident, generous and supportive as they mature and grow. With education, it’s their belief that children can break the bonds of poverty that have affected generations. The encouragement to further learning by enrolling in post-secondary education is a prime objective. Most of these children go on to lead successful adult lives.

Children often arrive at Corazon de Niña in deplorable condition. It is not unusual for them to be ill, stricken with parasites, lice and scabies. Many are victims of horrible abuse and in need of therapy, dental and medical attention, and a safe place where they can live without dread waking up in the morning. It’s a joy to see the growth and development of these children, learn some of their stories and how they’ve progressed.

Here are a few of our guiding principals at Boardwalk Realty:

“First of all, we really want to get to know you,”   When we know you, we can tailor home tours to your tastes.”

Secondly, there’s the legal side of owning in Mexico. “Besides our own experience, we can save you a lot of time and money by offering you complimentary consultations with our partner attorneys.  The nuances of how you buy here can save you a lot of money when you sell. It’s important to know what you’re doing on the purchase so that when you sell you can best use any tax advantages. This service is free to our clients and can be invaluable.”

Both partners agree that the most important element of Boardwalk Realty is our ongoing service and commitment to our clients after the sale.  We are both passionate about protecting the investment and security of our clients.  “Our clients become our friends, we see them socially, and we treat them as we would like to be treated ourselves”, adds Mike.

Boardwalk Realty Puerto Vallarta represents buyers and sellers of real estate in the entire Bay of Banderas area, and will soon add a rental and property management division.
