UnknownThe Cabo Senior Center is called Club de Abuelos San Miguel or Grandparents Club.  Sinai Mota is the director which is open three days a week from 7:30 to 5:00, serving breakfast and lunch.  Five to ten volunteers help with cooking and assisting.  Th center supplies food, medical, and other supplies and services to approximately 250 seniors living at the poverty level. (Yes, there is a social security pension available in Mexico, but you first have to pay into the system in your earning years, and over half of all Mexicans don’t pay taxes.)

They also operate a second hand store, selling donated items. These fun activities allow them  to earn a small income and feel less dependent.
