MISSION STATEMENT: IILA’s mission is to help families become self-sufficient and to promote cross-cultural understanding by providing services to immigrants, refugees, survivors of human trafficking, and low-income working families.

ABOUT US: The International Institute of Los Angeles (IILA) was founded in 1914 to help immigrant women and girls adapt to their new lives in Los Angeles. Today, IILA offers a wide array of services to support refugees, immigrants and low-income working families to achieve self-sufficiency. Our programs include immigration legal assistance, refugee resettlement, an accelerated employment program for new arrivals, case management for survivors of human trafficking and unaccompanied minors, free or low-cost childcare through 9 state-funded pre-schools, daycare, and family centers, and subsidized transportation and nutrition services. In 2022, IILA assisted 53,000 clients, including helping resettle 1,000 Afghan and Ukrainian refugees.

SERVICE AREA: Los Angeles, Orange, San Bernardino, Riverside, Ventura and Kern Counties
