Bridge Refugee Services
Bridge Refugee Services is an ecumenical, non-profit organization facilitating the resettlement of refugees in East Tennessee. Refugees are persons who flee their homeland due to fear of persecution. Each year, the U.S. government welcomes thousands of refugees as legal residents. Bridge empowers refugees to become self-sufficient, and we work closely with many people in KnoxvilleÑincluding volunteers, employers, and churches that sponsor refugee familiesÑwho are willing to help their new neighbors.
