Lowell

IINE Lowell has welcomed refugees to the city since 1919. Today, the site serves refugee families and individuals from Afghanistan, Bhutan, Myanmar/Burma, China, Cuba, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Eritrea, Honduras, Iraq, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Uganda. We also serve Special Immigrant Visa holders from Afghanistan and Iraq, and Cubans and Haitians who are beneficiaries of the Cuban/Haitian entrant program. The International Institute provides an array of support services starting with the initial resettlement program that lasts for a short 90 days. Support services are focused on helping refugees and immigrants successfully transition into their new lives in the United States and include job placements services; cultural adjustment programming; English language instruction; extended case management support; an asset development program for families ready to take steps towards purchasing a vehicle or home; and citizenship application services.
