“I Have a Dream Foundation – Los Angeles

Since 1987, the “I Have a Dream” Foundation –Los Angeles (IHADLA) has supported over 11,400 community individuals—including our Dreamers, their parents and siblings—in 19 programs and counting. IHADLA is the only educational organization in Los Angeles that works with elementary school children through their high school graduation and transition into college, and guarantees them tuition and support through their post secondary education. IHADLA students receive IHADLA’s full services of in-school, after-school and year-round academic, social, and emotional support—all designed to break the cycle of intergenerational poverty.
