Welcome to the International Institute of Buffalo!
Since 1918...The IIB seeks to strengthen Western New York by assisting refugees and immigrants to become independent, informed and contributing members of the community, and by promoting and supporting cultural competence, multiculturalism and global connectedness throughout the region.
In 2013 the countries we resettled refugees from included Burma, Bhutan, Somalia, Eritrea, Sudan, Iraq and Iran.
