An innovative project consisting of different homes, care facilities and comprehensive services served by different organizations, religious congregations, institutions, professionals and volunteers, all with the spirit of service to the most needy in the community. All members share the Mission of Ciudad de la Alegria Foundation A.C., which was founded in 2001, and operates under the direction of the social pastoral of the Catholic Church.

It was created to fully respond to social problems and the most urgent needs of Cancun and its surrounding areas through concrete and coordinated activities for the benefit of every abandoned or pregnant woman, elderly, young adult, child or person in vulnerable situation that requires the support of the Foundation.

Official indicators state that in Mexico there are 55 million people living in poverty, in the State of Quintana Roo there are more than 550,000, and Benito Juarez has more than 185,000. Ciudad de la Alegria Foundation A.C. in Cancun supports every year more than 40,000 people.

In response to this reality, in year 2000, a group of brave people who share a genuine concern for people, decided to undertake a project of specific actions that deliver their Christian love to those in need.

"Building a community of specialized institutions, based in the Christian values, providing suitable spaces for the attention of vulnerable groups, supporting them with its full development, so they can meet their commitment of dignifying people‘s life."
"Be a model of replicable attention of self-sustaining harmonic communities and for the transformation of vulnerable groups, that provides confidence in any place that it is requiredd to bring the joy of serving and live with love and dignity, and so transform the community and to all its environment."
