International House 40th Anniversary event
Time & Location
About the Event
International House was established in 1981 to be a symbol of tolerance, understanding and compassion to the international community. The organization was opened to be a cultural center that provided people with the opportunities to learn, share, experience and understand our neighbors, to make lasting connections and friendships.
This year we celebrate 40 years of being a place that the community no matter race, creed, or culture can find caring and passionate individuals to help them on their journey whether that journey be a better life for them and their families or a greater international understanding.
Over the past 40 years, the organization has continued to be a symbol to the community. We have pivoted as needed, developing new programs to help fill the needs of our community, we work alongside other organizations to strengthen their services, and while our mission and vision statements have adapted throughout the years their core has remained the same.
International House promotes international understanding and helps immigrants integrate fully into our community. We envision a Charlotte that welcomes the world.
