Founder and First President/CEO, Aida McCammon, MSW, ACSW.
The Indiana Latino Institute, Inc. (ILI) was established in 2001 as a statewide effort to aid Latino-serving organizations throughout Indiana. Latinos are a rapidly growing minority in the state, and in the country. We believe that local organizations best understand the specific needs of their communities; thereby, Latinos can best be served by developing internal capacities at local levels.
Indiana has seen a growth in services available for Latinos; however, they still face many disparities. Our hope is to eliminate those disparities through cooperation, collaboration, and action. Since the inception of the Indiana Latino Institute, Inc. programs and initiatives in health, education, and in other areas have benefited over 10 counties throughout Indiana.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has named ILI the Lead Agency for the National Latino Tobacco Control Network. For more information, please visit the latino tobacco control network website, at LatinoTobaccoControlNetwork.org, or click the NLTCN tab (above).
At ILI, we maintain an updated Resource Center that is full of educational materials, which include brochures, CD’s, DVD’s, flyers, journals, pamphlets, publications, videos, and other media related to important health issues affecting Latino Communities.
ILI offers translation and interpretation services from English to Spanish, and/or vice-versa. Furthermore, we are involved in many special projects and we are always looking to collaborate with agencies and organizations that share our passion in working to improve Latino communities.
At ILI, we offer diverse trainings in various areas to build cultural capacity. Please check our calendar of events for a complete list of trainings, seminars, lectures, presentations, and other important community events in which ILI participates.
We invite you to explore our website and we welcome your ideas and/or suggestions.
We would like to extend our sincere gratitude to our funders for their continued support which allows us to reach out to the Latino communities.
