We are committed to proactively supporting and assisting Indiana Latino community members and to directly connecting the Latino community to the ILI mission, vision, and programming opportunities.

 

Our mission is to improve health and advance education for the Indiana Latino community through statewide advocacy, research, and culturally responsive programs. Our vision is to be the source of authority and catalyst for change on all aspects of Health and Education that affect the Indiana Latino Community.

 

The Indiana Latino Institute strongly believes that local organizations best understand the specific needs of the communities they serve; therefore, we truly believe that Latinos can best be served by developing internal capacities at local levels throughout the state of Indiana, a strategy that we have developed and refined over the course of our existence. Since our inception in 2001, the programs and initiatives created and implemented in health, education and in other areas of importance to the Latino community have benefited Latinos throughout the state, with programming efforts concentrating on over 10 counties throughout Indiana with the highest percentages of Latinos.
