Commitment, Inc. was started in 2005 to help individuals in need in Baja California. The aid was in
the form of a series of operations, including a number of heart operations, various other operations, and general medical care. Much of the work was done in the Sierra de San Francisco in Baja
California Sur. Assistance was also given to help with education costs to enable individuals to better connect with the world around them and give a better life to themselves and their families.
Similar work has been done in El Rosario and Las Missiones, a part of Colonia Guerrero just north of San Quintin.
Commitment is now doing work in Baja California Sur, especially in Loreto. You can click on the Loreto-BCS page at the top right to get more detailed information.
An important focus has been on a fire and rescue group called "Halcones de Desierto" or Desert Hawks, based in El Rosario, BC, a small town about 250 miles south of San Diego. The Desert Hawks started in 2013 with the donation of an ambulance from the Schaefer Ambulance Company of California. We are currently working closely with the new municipality of San Quintin to improve the rescue services south of El Rosario all the way to the boundary of Baja California Sur.
Commitment, Inc. has a sister company in Mexico, which is also a non-profit organization, called Fundacion Commitment International A.C. Together we have been raising funds and securing equipment to enable the group to serve the community as well as tourists traveling the main highway in Baja California. We serve close to 200 miles of the highway.
With the help of the community and many individuals, we have become one of the most effective rescue groups in Baja California. The Desert Hawks currently has 10 vehicles, including 4 ambulances, 2 fire engines, a water tender, a mini pumper, a 4WD off-road rescue vehicle, and a large SUV to transport people. The group responds to over 100 calls per year ranging from minor injuries to life-threatening emergencies. While most of the calls have involved Mexican citizens, there have been a significant number of calls involving Americans, Canadians, and Europeans.
