About our Manchester site
IINE-Manchester provides vital support and assistance to Manchester’s refugee and immigrant community. Manchester has welcomed refugees in partnership with IINE since 1994. Today, IINE Manchester resettled refugees from all over the world with predominant populations from Afghanistan, Bhutan, Burma, Democratic Republic of Congo, Iraq, Somalia, and Syria. Upon arrival in New Hampshire, refugees are welcomed with a basic home and are guided by IINE through the beginning phases of the integration process. 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, classroom support for refugee youth, cultural adjustment programming, English language instruction, critical medical case management, and extended case management support for individuals working to overcome additional barriers to successful integration.
