International Institute of Minnesota

Mission Statement

Helping New Americans achieve self-sufficiency and full membership in American life.

Impact and Programs

Accomplishments The International Institute of Minnesota advanced its FY 2017 programs and services in three primary areas: Refugee Services, Education and Career Pathways, and Immigration Services. Planned outcomes include: • The Institute resettled at least 348 refugees, addressing their immediate transition needs, including: airport reception, finding and furnishing housing, connecting adults with ESL classes and employment counseling, enrolling children in school, applying for social security cards, accessing medical care and public benefits. Services for new arrivals expanded with new healthcare navigation support ensuring every client has a “medical care home” and access to mental health services. • The Insitute provided education, employment training and job placement services for New Americans. We offered free English classes to more than 300 people and more than 270 clients began employment. • More than 1300 individuals filed citizenship applications and/or took the Institute's citizenship class and more than 1200 people received other immigration services (permanent residency applications, DACA and other employment documents) with support from accredited immigration representatives at the Institute. These accredited services can save clients hundreds to thousands of dollars in attorney fees.
Current Goals These initiatives are for the next four years--we do not identify goals for individual years: Initiative 1. Continue to be a leader in workforce development by expanding our career pathway programs for New Americans, leading to employment with family-sustaining wages Initiative 2. Continue to expand capacity and high-quality evidenced-based programs Initiative 3: Increase community affinity, engagement and investment in the Institute’s programs and services
Community or Constituency Served New Americans age 18+ and their families, focusing on resettling refugees, those who need low-cost immigration services, English classes or workforce training.
Geographic Area Served We serve the Twin Cities metro area with the majority of clients coming from Ramsey and Hennepin counties.
