IMMIGRANT FAMILY SERVICES INSTITUTE (IFSI-USA) 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-USA works to improve access to social services for immigrant families. In response to recent events, IFSI-USA supports those affected bu changes in immigration legislation, including Temporary Protective Status.

IFSI-USA works with new immigrants who have been in the country for less than ten years and are in need of our services. IFSI-USA works to reduce barriers for immigrants to access services, thus facilitating their successful transition into the social and economic fabric of their cities. We adopt a holistic approach to serving immigrants by integrating children, parents, and grand-parents, and other stakeholders into a village model that resonates positively with immigrants in general.  We provide direct services to immigrants and leadership support to community leaders and their organizations to strengthen their infrastructure in service delivery to immigrants.

 

We pursue a set of innovative strategies to facilitate the integration of our target population and improve their quality of life.  All IFSI-USA programs and services are culturally appropriate, future-oriented, and make use of strategic partnerships, and computer applications when appropriate to connect immigrants with services and organizations to immigrants.

 

IFSI's goal is to be a leading institute of leadership thought and action, providing an excellent framework from a futuristic and global perspective to equip providers and stakeholders to meet the future emerging needs of immigrants in the United States and throughout the world. To do this, we are establishing strategic alliances with various sectors interested in meeting the health, education, social and economic needs of the immigrants. 


 Among the partners, IFSI plans to work with colleges and universities, hospitals, churches, various immigrant groups, policy makers and key stakeholders including youth, parents and community leaders as reflected in the organizational chart. IFSI-USA executive committee and advisory board of directors reflects the many groups served by the organization.  They come from a broad mix of backgrounds, professions, and skills with broad connections to the immigrant community. Lead staff are immigrant leaders with years of experience in working in the field.  Through the village model, IFSI plans to bring the best of each sector to strengthen the immigrant community.
