International Institute of Akron to move offices to Summa St. Thomas Campus

AKRON, Ohio - International Institute of Akron will close its office at 207 East Tallmadge Avenue in North Hill on Sept. 24 and move to the Summa Health System St. Thomas Campus.

IIA, which serves and helps resettle Akron’s immigrants and refugees, will reopen its doors on Oct. 1 at 8:30 a.m. at 20 Olive Street, Suite 201.

Free parking is located in the lot behind the Summa building at the corner of Olive Street and North Howard Street. The entrance is at the back of the building. IIA’s telephone numbers and email addresses will remain the same.

“We are so grateful to have the International Institute as a vital community asset here in Akron,” said Mayor Dan Horrigan in a news release. “It was imperative that they remain close to their core clients in North Hill, and the community came together to assure that happened. I look forward to further strengthening our partnership to further grow this community together.”

The organization is moving to make way for a state road project, which will reconfigure Dayton Street.

“We appreciate the patience of our clients and the community as we make this transition. Our services to the immigrant community will continue with minimal interruption.” said Madhu Sharma, IIA’s acting executive director, in the news release.
