The Coalition of Irish Immigration Centers (CIIC) is a national umbrella group for all of the Irish Immigration Centers in the US. The CIIC was established in 1996 to promote the welfare of Irish immigrants in the US at a national level.
The mission of the CIIC is to represent immigrant organizations throughout the United States who are committed to providing services to Irish immigrants. The Coalition provides support and assistance to the various centers in their work through advocacy, education and the exchange of information. CIIC member organizations are located in California, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, New York, Philadelphia, Washington and Wisconsin.
Each center provides their own unique array of services, outreach and assistance to immigrants. They offer safe and reliable places where Irish and immigrants of other nationalities can get information and referrals on a variety of issues including; employment, immigration, citizenship, programs for seniors, counseling, substance abuse, outreach, housing and returning to Ireland. All services are provided in a safe, friendly, confidential and professional atmosphere.
The CIIC acts as an information clearinghouse and assists the work of our members through advocacy, training and sharing best practices. The CIIC and the member centers are a strong voice for the needs of Irish Immigrants and an advocate for fair and just immigration legislation for all immigrants to the US.
