Mission Statement: Ibero is a dual-language human services agency that ignites the potential of individuals and families to prosper and make the community stronger.
We’re 50 in 2018!
Established in 1968, Ibero has evolved into an agency that serves individuals and families of all ethnic backgrounds, and our unique ability to target the Latino community remains unprecedented in this region. Through our educational programs, we prepare children for school; provide academic, health and social support to youth (and families); work with parents to help them strengthen their family unit, and ensure that individuals with developmental disabilities have a high quality of life.
Known as IBERO’S 5 IN 5, we are proud to share that within five months Ibero received three Certificates of Excellent for achieving outstanding results in the following areas: Facilitating Parent Volunteerism, Moving Families toward Self-Sufficiency, and Identifying and Enrolling Families in GED programs. We also secured a second place win for a Community Service Program at the Youth Voice, One Vision Conference at Nazareth College, and received the Organizational Quality Leadership Award (Presented by the Youth Services Quality Council) for Providing Commitment, Support and Quality Service for Youth and Families. Recently, we were also awarded the Recognizing Innovation award for our deep and meaningful parent engagement and keeping the needs of children and family as the driving factor in service innovation.
Ibero’s main divisions are Children, Youth, Family, Developmental Disabilities, and Emergency Services. We own and operate the only Latino-owned dual-language radio station Poder 97.1FM.
