Immigrant Family Services Institute is a 501 c 3 non-profit organization based in Massachusetts committed to improving the lives and increasing the opportunities for recent immigrants and their families.
IFSI focuses on children first. We provide academic support using a holistic approach that addresses the unique challenges of immigrant children. We advocate for immigrant rights, most recently addressing current TPS recipients by finding alternative paths to citizenship and providing accurate and timely information. We also run programs for recent immigrants to increase the access to education, employment, healthcare and other services critical to successful integration.
We aim to be a leading institute of leadership thought and action, providing an excellent framework from a futuristic and global perspective to meet the emerging needs of immigrants in the United States and throughout the world.
IFSI is moving into a brand new space! We are busy setting up our new home at 1626 Blue Hills Avenue in Mattapan Square. More details to follow!
