It’s All About Potential…Feb. 7, 2012

“Most people see what is, and never see what can be.”  — Albert Einstein

The main house at the Casita del Corazon has big, airy rooms that will be a great environment for children once the renovation is done.

The Casita del Corazon is a metaphor of its own mission. As we work to renovate a property that once needed much more care than was available, it’s changing. The potential beneath the surface is beginning to show–just as we hope will happen for children who will come here for therapy.

Repairs are progressing. Painting continues. It’s beginning to feel like a hopeful place. Thanks to all the volunteers–local therapists who will have a beautiful new place to work, families who will use the services and our Friends of Cozumel workers, too.

Serious painting calls for just the right headwear.

“What a wonderful group of people we have with us this trip,” said Larry. We were a little nervous about having as many as 20-25 people working there at the same time, but everyone is getting so much accomplished as they quietly form into groups to tackle tasks. Carrie (of Carrie’s Heart) is really going to be surprised when she sees her house that she’s going to open for children.”

Bright colors are being used to help stimulate the senses of children's in therapy.

Sandy takes a hit- from painting, not a bird.

    Everything looks soooooo GREAT at our new & improved “Casita del Corazon”! A HUGE thank you to all the wonderful Friends of Cozumel volunteers who have dedicated their hard work to this project. I look forward to you all coming back to see us again when we are up and running! The doors of the casita are always open to friends! 🙂
