Mission

Today, the needs of immigrants and refugees in Connecticut are more complex and require the Institute to offer an array of integrated interdisciplinary services that can address the needs of its clients.The Institute is also helping an increasing number of individuals who are victims of serious crimes, including human trafficking, and it has established new programs with the FBI, domestic violence organizations and other agencies in order to provide appropriate services to address this growing need. Our Survivors of Torture Program addresses the special needs of immigrants and refugees who have been victims of torture. IICONN’s new micro-loan program provides low-income refugees and immigrants access to non-traditional lending, and assists them to build credit. The organization is also playing a greater role in educating the public about key issues affecting new immigrants.
