Our Partners

National Resettlement Agencies

Church World Service: CWS has worked for seven decades with one goal: building a world where there is enough for all. We affirm the power of individuals and communities to take ownership of their future. We meet them right where they are, helping them create solutions they can maintain – and build on. That means a refugee family who is able to start a new life. Or someone rebuilding after disaster, finds safety with dignity. CWS provides funding for resettlement services and early-employment programming.

Episcopal Migration Ministries: Episcopal Migration Ministries’ vision honors both the Episcopal Church’s baptismal covenant and the historical role of the United States as a safe haven for those seeking freedom from oppression. EMM is committed to carrying these values and commitments forward into the future on behalf of the Church. EMM provides funding for resettlement services and early-employment programming.

State Partners

Tennessee Office for Refugees (TOR): The Tennessee Office for Refugees’ mission is to foster growth, integration, and self-sufficiency by providing financial, technical, and professional support to refugees and the agencies who serve them in the State of Tennessee. TOR provides Bridge Refugee Services with funding for employment and case management services, intensive case management, health promotion programs, cash and medical assistance, elderly programs, and school impact services.
