Who We Serve

The Boston site serves refugees, asylees, and immigrants throughout Greater Boston through a core of common services essential to our mission: refugee resettlement, case management, health services navigation, employment, education and literacy, and skills training programming. Our refugee resettlement, community services and employment programs provide the initial welcome, cultural and community orientation, early basic needs, as well as English for Employment classes and employment support to refugees and asylees fleeing persecution and conflict in their homelands.

History – Celebrating 100 Years

Six years after the International Institute of Lowell was established in 1918, the International Institute of Boston was established at the YWCA then located at 12 Newbury Street in 1924. The Institute separated from the YWCA in 1935, and over the ensuing decades hundreds of community groups, individuals, corporations, and foundations joined forces with the International Institute to help new Americans integrate into New England. Today, our Boston site includes over 100 staff, who provide a range of services to more than 1,500 refugee and immigrant clients annually.
