Immigrant Family Services Institute, (IFSI-USA) Mattapan
Our mission is to expedite the successful integration of recent immigrants into the social and economic fabric of the United States with justice and dignity. 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.
Immigrant Family Services Institute provides 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.
In addition, IFSI advocates for immigrant rights, most recently addressing current TPS recipients by helping with alternative paths to citizenship and providing accurate and timely information about and responses to new developments.
"As a community service organization, The Immigrant Family Services Institute strives to support the immigrant community in many ways. During the past few years, we have served many families daily, mostly newly arrived migrants in Massachusetts. Finding partners and organizations dedicated to supporting families and children is always a pleasure. It has been a pleasure to receive generous donations from Storytime Crafts with some school/educational materials that have been a big help to the children and families we serve every day. Your donations here at IFSI are greatly appreciated by our families. Our heartfelt thanks go out to the Storytime Crafts."
