Ibero is a dual language multi service agency that uplifts, empowers, and advocates for Latinos and the underserved. Ibero was incorporated in 1968 to address the growing needs of the Latino community in Monroe County. Since its inception as a grassroots organization, Ibero has evolved into a multi-faceted, fully comprehensive human service agency with a wide range of programs and services for children, youth, individuals, and families. As the only dual-language human services agency in Monroe County, Ibero has the unique ability to target individuals and families in both English and Spanish. While they do serve people of all ethnic backgrounds, 70% of those who come to Ibero for services are Latinos with English as a second language or monolingual Spanish-speaking individuals.
