Founded in 1918, the International Institute of New England (IINE) is one of the oldest and largest social service organizations for new Americans in the region. Each year, we serve nearly 2,000 refugee, asylee, and immigrant clients across our three sites in Boston and Lowell, Massachusetts, and Manchester, New Hampshire. In addition to Legal Immigration Forms Service, we provide ESOL classes, employment supports and industry-specific skills training, as well as case management for refugees and immigrants. 


Due to COVID-19, our office is currently working remotely. We are able to service clients living outside of New England as well.
