Computer Literacy Program for Immigrant Women in Baltimore

Immigration Outreach Service Center's mission is to partner with and empower immigrants in the Baltimore area to lead successful lives in the United States. We are dedicated to being the hub from which our clients build the networks of relationships that best serve them. 

Since 2000, the Immigration Outreach Service Center (IOSC) has helped immigrants in the Baltimore area to lead successful lives. The IOSC provides information, referrals, and resources to clients, runs a weekly tutoring program for children, and educates the community about immigration issues. Among its services are free health screenings and health education sessions, job counseling services, and referrals to local service providers for legal services, health care services, housing information, assistance in finding educational and employment opportunities, and food assistance.

The Computer Literacy Program for Immigrant Women in Baltimore introduces immigrant women to the use of computers. Computer literacy helps these women become more self-sufficient, prepare for entry into the workforce, access information about needed resources, and communicate with family living elsewhere.

The Baltimore Women’s Giving Circle grant has provided IOSC with funding to start the Computer Literacy Program, including purchase of 10 computers and software, and salaries for trainers.
