The Indiana Latino Institute improves health and advances education for the Indiana Latino community through advocacy, research and innovative programs.
Our vision is to be the source of authority on issues affecting the Indiana Latino Community.
HEAR Our Voice!
To bring this vision to reality, we have developed a four-pronged approach to the core programming structure of ILI:
Individually, each of these initiatives are meant to provide a support network of services and programming geared toward helping those in need and encouraging the Indiana Latino population and the organizations that serve them to become informed, educated and empowered.
Together, these core areas will actively allow our Indiana Latino Communities to become a stronger, more self-sufficient and thriving population, able to work together for a better and more promising future for all citizens.
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, research and advocacy and in other areas have benefited Latinos in Indiana.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has named ILI the Lead Agency for the National Latino Tobacco Control Network.
ILI is 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.
ILI offers diverse trainings, seminars, lectures, presentations, and other important community events in various areas to build cultural capacity.
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. THANK YOU!
