For almost 100 years the International Institute of Buffalo - the region's only secular resettlement agency - has worked to change the lives of everyone who crosses our threshold.  We set new Americans on the path to productivity benefitting them and our entire region.  And, we're a gateway to the world for Western New York.

The IIB's main program areas are:

  • Refugee resettlement - Including employment training and placement and financial literacy counciling.
  • Victim Services - Survivors of domestic violence and human trafficking find safety.
  • Language Services - Translation and interpretation in over 90 languages; and English as a second language class.
  • Global Education - Cultural competency trainings for schools, businesses, and civic groups; Model UN and WorldQuest for high school students; global issues lecture series; U.S. State Department sponsored international visitors from Africa, Asia, Canada, Europe, and the Middle East are hosted to learn from our hospitals, schools, government and cultural institutions.
