Compassion for the Family Inc. takes domestic violence against women very seriously. It is imperative that women and their children be offered a safe refuge. Compassion for the Family Inc. is committed to providing this service that is so badly needed in Puerto Vallarta and the surrounding area. In order to provide this service, Compassion for the Family has constructed a shelter in a discrete location in the greater Puerto Vallarta area. Non disclosure of the location of the facility is imperative if the organization is to be able to provide a safe refuge.
Compassion for the Family Inc. does not actively seek out women that are physically abused. Compassion for the Family Inc. does not remove women from an abusive environment nor does it involve itself in domestic disturbances. Compassion for the Family Inc. accepts women and their children to the shelter exclusively through recommendations from Mexican Social Services, The Women's Institute and the Health Department.
