Who We Are

Irish Government Support

The Irish International Immigrant Center is deeply grateful to the Government of Ireland for its continued support of Irish people living abroad. 

The Irish Government’s Department of Foreign Affairs through the Irish Abroad Unit’s Emigrant Support Program has a longstanding commitment to the Irish diaspora by providing grant support to the IIIC for its support of hundreds of Irish immigrants and exchange students each year.

Thanks to this grant, the IIIC offers a range of services to the Irish Community in Boston: immigration legal services, citizenship services, social services, individual counseling, job readiness programs, and support of young Irish students and graduates, who come the U.S. to develop job skills , contribute to the economy, and gain the confidence to contribute to become future leaders in Ireland upon their return home.

Special Thanks to Arbella Insurance Foundation

We are especially grateful to the Arbella Insurance Foundation. Their steadfast support of the IIIC enables us to empower more than 3,500 immigrant and refugee families from over 120 countries every year. Through the Arbella Insurance Foundation Immigrant Learning Center, we are able to provide educational opportunities for more than 200 students every year. We are honored and grateful to partner with an organization committed to supporting local people and communities.

Thank You to the Cummings Foundation

The IIIC is one of 100 local nonprofits to receive a grant of $100,000 through the Cummings Foundation. On behalf of the immigrant and refugee families that we serve, the IIIC is grateful for their support and is excited to partner with the foundation again over the upcoming four years to provide immigration legal services for those in need in Greater Boston. Our Commonwealth is fortunate to have generous leaders like Joyce and Bill Cummings.
