THE STORY:

In July of 2007 Fourteen occupational and physcial therapists traveled to Juarez, Mexico to share their professional knowledge and therapy skills at a clinic called Fundacion Integra. During this two-week mission we trained the staff as we worked side-by-side treating their clients.  We made home visits teaching caregivers how to manage their family member's care. After two weeks we saw dramatic changes in the therapy and quality of care that was taking place. We realized that we could make a difference in the lives of people with disabilities and those who care for them....and Therapy Missions was created.

Our Mission:

Therapy missions improves the quality of life of individuals with disabilities and their caregivers in underserved areas of the world using our Teach, Treat, & Train model.

Our purpose:

We develop the rehabilitation knowledge and skills of caregivers as they help children and adults with disabilities become more active participants in their community.

Our Impact

Our experience has shown us that using the Teach, Treat, & Train approach to a caregiver's learning and development has a strong ripple effect...  it builds sustainability and self-sufficiency in the communities we serve, while producing lasting positive health outcomes for those living with life-long developmental and physical disabilities.
