IMMIGRANT FAMILY SERVICES INSTITUTE strives to address the academic and personal challenges confronting our immigrant children by providing targeted support and enrichment services as a way to maximize their potential in school and beyond. IFSI also advocates for immigrants by reducing barriers to accessing services and works with immigrants most affected by recent changes to immigration legislation including Temporary Protective Status (TPS). IFSI also advocates for immigrants' rights and access to services including health care, education, housing and other social services.
What We Do

PLUS+ weekend offers academic tutoring, college prep and musical ensemble instruction. PLUS+ summer offers full day academic and enrichment programming including a middle school STEAM curriculum.
