Community Partners

Being a dynamic member of our community entails effective participation and involvement with a variety of institutions and organizations whose visions and goals are aligned with ours. Through this outreach effort, we learn from each other and join efforts to improve the educational and therapeutic standards in our communities. Some of our current partners include:

Institute for the Redesign of Learning (IRL)

The Almansor Center, under the auspices of the Institute for the Redesign of Learning, reaches nearly 3,400 children and adults annually and provides support to families from 37 communities in the greater Los Angeles area and the West San Gabriel Valley. Almansor’s professional and support staff work collaboratively to offer a full-range of services in Special Education Day School (non-public school), Mental Health Services, Early Childhood Education, Transition and Adult Services, and Community Outreach to Head Start programs.

Almansor’s mission is simple: to empower individuals to take charge of their own learning process and become competent, caring, and contributing members of society; to provide training opportunities for families and professionals to support those efforts.
