About The Irish International Immigrant Center:

The Irish International Immigrant Center (IIIC) is a nonprofit organization founded in 1989 by a group of Irish immigrants committed to helping others make successful transitions to new lives in the U.S. and greater Boston. Our mission is to assist immigrants from around the world as they integrate into American society. We are a vibrant, multi-service center that provides legal, wellness and education services, advocates for systemic change, and facilitates cross-cultural community building. Our vision is of a shared society where all people are welcomed and valued and enjoy equal opportunities, protections, and respect.

Today, the Center’s programs assist at least 2,500 individuals from more than 120 countries each year, most of whom are low-income and underserved. They range from recent refugees who are victims of persecution to long-time residents seeking U.S. citizenship. We are well known in the immigrant community for our integrated multi-service approach. Together, our dedicated staff and volunteers create a safe and welcoming place for our constituents.
