International Residents

Welcome, International Families!

Families staying at The Children’s Inn at NIH come from all over the world. To make sure our international families feel at home, The Inn’s International Outreach Program provides activities and resources to assist families in sharing their culture while comfortably transitioning to a new environment. This is accomplished through support and activities that reduce isolation, break through cultural and communication barriers, reduce financial stress and provide all families with some comforts from home. Monthly cultural family nights, international first visit meetings, and free English classes are among the services utilized by our international residents.

Resources for Families From:  

Africa Europe
Asia The Middle East
The Caribbean North America
Central America South America


Cultural/Spiritual Centers in the DC Metro Area
