Our mission is to support disabled people and to supply wheelchairs, crutches and other devices.

Also, our aim is to provide tuition on a trade so that they can lead a productive life.

Due to an accident more than 2 decades ago, Ivan Applegate became disabled.

Three years after the incident, he became the founder of DIVAC, Discapacitados Vallartenses or Handicap Services of Vallarta.

He is a tireless advocate for defending the rights of people with disabilities.

We believe that with positive reinforcement, it will encourage the disabled members of our community to move forward and realize that attitude is everything in creating a great example to follow.
