Founded in 1918, the International Institute of New England (IINE) is one of the region’s oldest and largest non-profit social service organizations serving new Americans.

We create opportunities for refugees and immigrants to succeed through resettlement, education, career advancement and pathways to citizenship.  In 2019, more than 2,500 immigrants and refugees took part in our family reunification, education, skills training, job placement, and legal services programs offered in Boston and Lowell, Massachusetts, and Manchester, New Hampshire.

Since 1980, we have placed more than 15,000 refugees in New England communities. Today, our Central American family reunification program is the largest in Greater Boston. Our work is critical to the growth the region’s economy.  Each year we place hundreds of well-trained and ambitious immigrants in jobs in companies in Massachusetts and New Hampshire.
