Ibero-American Action League, a dual-language human services agency, ignites the potential of individuals and families to prosper and make the community stronger.
“More than 20 years ago if someone would have told me I’d be here today, I would have said “Don’t bet on it.” At the age of 16, I had a baby and was destined to be a high school dropout. IBERO provided me with the support I needed. Today, I am proud to say that I have a master’s degree in Health Administration, I’m the VP of Compliance, Quality and Addiction Services at Villa of Hope, and an IBERO board member.”

“My granddaughter is a thriving young child because of the time she spent at IBERO’S Early Childhood Center. Had it not been for the staff and their daily work with her, my granddaughter would have just been another statistic, and I can’t thank IBERO enough.” Rachel Hanks

“Without Ibero, I don’t know where I or my children would be.  My three sons started going to IBERO’S Early Childhood Center at the age of three. It helped them develop their social skills, reach their milestones, and gave them day-to-day structure and engagement with other kids and adults at a time when they really needed it.” Sametrius Brigham
