Making Western New York a better place for and because of refugees and immigrants.
What We Do
The Institute offers integration, refugee resettlement and employment programs; provides services to survivors of domestic violence and human trafficking; offers translation and interpretation services to break down barriers; presents global education programs for students, adults and businesses; and hosts international visitors.
On an average day, dozens are welcomed into our building. Some are newly arrived to America and beginning to learn English. Some come to acquire job skills, become interpreters or receive interpreting and translation assistance. Others come to learn how to support WNY's growing diversity, or to seek refuge from domestic violence and human trafficking.
