STAND/ with us in Nashville....

World Relief has placed refugees in the Nashville area since the early 1980's. The Nashville affiliate office was officially established for resettlement in 1987.  Our mission and prayer is that the local Church and community at large will embrace refugees who have been forced to leave their country, culture, friends, and families for safety. World Relief empowers volunteers and churches to help meet their physical, relational, and spiritual needs.

Who is a Refugee?

A refugee is someone who is forced to flee their home country by ethnic, religious, or political persecution. Over 19 million people have gathered what belongings they could carry and escaped to another country. Many have lived in camps for over 10 years, and they're waiting to go home. Some refugees are invited by the U.S. government to make another, life changing move -- to rebuild their lives in the U.S.
