About ABS


Every year we touch the lives of many Americans and others living in Mexico of all ages and backgrounds. We focus on assisting seniors, but have a wide range of services for all.


We meet the specific needs of individual people through our direct support services. Our work encompasses five general areas:

  • Social services to the community
  • The ABS Lifelong Learning Center
  • Health programs and services
  • Preservation and administration of The American Cemetery in Mexico City
  • Caza Libros – The ABS English bookstore (used and new books)



For almost 150 years, the American Benevolent Society has worked with individuals and families in need by working closely with key partners in the community. For example, the ABC Medical Center supports the medical needs of our clients; and we have certified nurses who come into our offices to provide basic health check-ups on a monthly basis. We also work with the US Embassy in Mexico, the Charity Coalition, the American School Foundation and other similar organizations.  


A benevolent community organization dedicated to helping Americans and others in need.
