Founded in 1918, the International Institute of New England (IINE) is one of the region’s longest established, largest, and most trusted 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. Over the past three years, the number of refugees and immigrants that take part in our family reunification, education, skills training, job placement, and legal services programs offered in Boston and Lowell, Massachusetts, and Manchester, New Hampshire has doubled.

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