Welcoming refugees in East Tennessee since 1982


Our Mission

To provide opportunities for refugees to rebuild their lives after suffering persecution so that they may become productive, contributing members of the community.


Bridge Refugees Services Inc. works to help preserve the dignity of our clients, promote their rights within their communities, and help them find peace in their new homeland. Read the stories of our clients' journeys.



Our services support each client's hope for a new life and a brighter future—hope that their dreams can come true and their families will prosper. Please consider a monetary donation to help refugees reach these goals.



Bridge works with community partners in Knoxville and Chattanooga to provide refugees with opportunities to grow and thrive in their new homes. There are several ways you can help welcome and support them.
