Meet the Team

It’s vitally important to us that ILAYS' services are delivered to our community, by members of our community. That’s why we’re staffed almost entirely by volunteers who generously give up their time to serve the community.


The diversity of our staff allows us to provide services in multiple languages, including Swahili, Arabic, Spanish, Urdu, Punjabi, Somali and Amharic.
