ISS-USA mobilizes a domestic and international network of legal and social work professionals to efficiently connect vulnerable children, adults and families separated by international borders to the services and support they need.
In the spirit of international cooperation, we do the following:
- Assist those who, as a result of voluntary or forced migration or other social problems of an international character, have to overcome personal or family difficulties.
- Study from an international standpoint the conditions and consequences of migration in relation to individual and family life, and to make recommendations or undertake any other appropriate action.
- Contribute to the prevention of social problems linked to migration or intercountry mobility. Inform professionals and the public of the needs of migrant individuals and families.
- Develop and maintain an international network of bodies to meet the needs of individuals and families who require the services of ISS.
