Immigrant Services and Connections (ISAC)

Immigrant Services and Connections (ISAC)

Each year, we welcome people from more than 100 different countries and help them to thrive in their new home.

Immigrants and refugees often struggle to access vital services due to language and cultural barriers. Literacy Pittsburgh's Immigrant Services and Connections (ISAC) program helps new immigrants to Allegheny County get the help they need.

We speak with clients in their native language, listen to their questions, and get the answers. We can help them get assistance with food, rent, utilities, and transportation. We can help them navigate the healthcare system, find childcare, and access available benefits. For those in need of legal services, we can also provide referrals. Clients of ISAC do not have to be enrolled as Literacy Pittsburgh students to receive these services.

To get help, visit www.isacpittsburgh.org or call 412-742-4200.

]The Immigrant Services and Connections (ISAC) program is a multi-agency collaboration spearheaded by Jewish Family and Community Services.

He reported the incident to the police who told Tuhin they would be unable to protect him from being attacked.
