  • We need you to ADVOCATE/ for the vulnerable.

    The Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) must reprogram $94 away from critical refugee services to meet the needs of incoming unaccompanied minors. ORR must be able to meet the needs of these children AND the #refugees under its care! We are advocating for ORR to receive an additional $200m in FY2015 to bridge the gap. Will you join us?

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.

Many have lived in camps for over 10 years, 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.
