IBA’s Resident Services Program works to empower residents of the Villa Victoria affordable housing community, especially the community’s seniors, to live more active and fulfilling lives. Using a culturally responsive approach, our caring and bilingual team helps residents:

  1. Meet their basic needs through advocacy, case management and referrals.
  2. Keep active and connected to the community through social, recreational, and cultural programming.
  3. Boost their health and wellness through fitness/exercise classes, workshops and health screenings.
"It helped me make connections with my neighbors and each other. I learned to play music and share my skills. I would recommend this program because is a good way to bring people together, improve communications, improve health and trust each other. Also, people know who I am."- Edwin Seda, 52 years old.
