OVERVIEW OF IMMIGRANT FAMILY SERVICES INSTITUTE: The Immigrant Family Services Institute is a non-profit organization incorporated in the state of Massachusetts with the goal of facilitating the successful transition of recent immigrants into the social and economic fabric of the United States. IFSI focuses on children first. Educating children yields enormous benefits not only for the children but for society as youth engage and become productive members of the workforce. When institutions like IFSI step in to guide families and support children, we all benefit from the rich diversity immigrant families bring to our communities.
The mission of the Immigrant Family Services Institute is to provide targeted academic support and enrichment services, using an holistic approach that addresses the unique challenges of immigrant children as a way to maximize their full potential in school and beyond.
IFSI runs the PLUS+ After-School program for immigrant children from prek-8th grade (primarily from Haiti) daily from 2pm-6pm.
