About Us

International Institute of Los Angeles helping newly arrived immigrants integrate into their new lives in Los Angeles

International Institute of Los Angeles provides refugees, immigrants, and survivors of human trafficking with the skills, abilities, and resources they need to become self-sufficient and start their new lives in Southern California.

When newly-arrived individuals are able to secure their first jobs, get legal help, and find child care that works for their families, they are able to fully participate in and contribute to our communities.

Our dedicated staff provides a wide range of social, legal, and child care services to support the most critical needs of our communities. With a special focus on assisting limited-English proficient and low-income individuals, our staff provides free or low-cost child care, transportation to critical services, nutrition, reuniting and strengthening families, legal assistance, help navigating federal immigration policies and procedures, resettlement of refugees and asylum applicants, among other services for immigrants and refugees.
