My wife worked with the II as a volunteer through STLCC at Forest Park. She helped clients with utility assistance and also did things like taking families on bus rides from the Institute to their homes in order to teach them how to use public transportation. As a member of the general public, I am familiar with St. Louis as a destination for refugees, and I applaud the work of II in helping new arrivals assimilate effectively into the community. Every morning I pass the institute on the way to work, and I see a great number of people entering and leaving the building, and I am sure they appreciate the assistance they receive there, which makes me proud that we have such a facility in our city.
St Louis is fortunate to have the International Institute that provides so many wonderful services to the public from teaching English to helping families adjust to our region. Thanks for all you do!
