About Us

The Inspiration Center (TIC) is a non-governmental organization in Belize City that provides various therapy and health services to children with disabilities and their families. It was founded in March 2014 by Mrs. Kim Simplis-Barrow, Belize’s Special Envoy for Women and Children and Global Ambassador for Special Olympics International, in collaboration with CARE-Belize, the Government of Belize and numerous donors and stakeholders.

The Inspiration Center is the only organization to offer low-cost, comprehensive therapy and medical services to children with disabilities (birth to 16 years old) in the country of Belize. The children we serve have little access to therapy services at affordable rates and we strive to remain available to all families, regardless of financial background. We are unique because of our holistic approach to treatment that works to meet both the medical and social needs of our clients and their families. Through advocacy, empowerment, community involvement and promotion of equal rights for all, we hope to help children with disabilities live up to their fullest potential.

The merging of the Medical Model and the Community Based Rehabilitation Model of Care is what makes The Inspiration Center stand out. The Medical Model embraces medical and nursing services, diagnostic testing, comprehensive evaluation and treatment by physical and speech therapists and through referrals to specialists. On the other hand, the Community Based Model of care embraces grass roots efforts, local resources, low cost adaptive aids and inclusion. The merging of these models provides pioneering quality care with the emphasis on early intervention, stimulation and empowerment of our children with special needs.
